We are delighted to confirm that we are organising a 5K (3.1 miles) sponsored run/walk around the zoo in aid of the snow leopard re-homing.  The event will take place on Saturday the 23rd February 2019 at 10am and we would ask participants to arrive in ample time.

Registration forms and sponsor sheets can be picked up from the zoo office. If you would like your form posted or emailed out to you please call the office on 01506 870000.

Each participant will receive a personalised certificate and a medal, and refreshments will be provided throughout the event.

All proceeds will go directly towards the cost of completing the new snow leopard enclosure and the cost of transporting them from Belgium. We are hoping they will arrive within in the next 6 weeks, all going well.

We hope you can join us!


For the safety of our staff and visitors, we have made the decision to close the zoo from tonight. Our team of dedicated keepers and vet will continue to make sure all our animals are well looked after. We hope this will not be for too long a period but we will follow government advice and guidelines.

If you would like to donate towards the zoo, we appreciate any help although we know this is a difficult time for everyone.
Thank you all for your continued support and hope we can welcome you all back soon.
