Get Hands On
Thank you for supporting the zoo at this time, this means a great deal to us as providing care for our animals, whilst closed, incurs considerable costs.
As the office is currently closed, we have set up an automated gift voucher for you to add the recipient's name and a personalised message to send directly to them. When the office is able to reopen, we will send the confirmation pack to the recipient and it will ask them to book in their date.
Please note, that all our experiences, encounters, adoptions, tickets and memberships will have their validity extended to cover the closure period of the zoo.
