DEVELOPMENTS AT THE ZOO
We’re always building at Chester Zoo, and there are so many exciting developments on the horizon. Keep up to date here with all of the new plans for the zoo, along with any associated animal moves and temporary changes to animal locations.
Avian influenza: Due to recent reports of avian influenza in the UK, some of our walkthrough aviaries are temporarily closed to ensure the safety of our animals. This includes Latin American Wetland, Tsavo, Bali and Sumatra aviaries. However, Tropical Realm (aside from planned closure from 30 January to 3 February) and Monsoon Forest will remain open with disinfectant footbaths at the entrance and exit. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Tropical Realm maintenance work: Tropical Realm will be temporarily closed from Monday 30 January to Friday 3 February for visitor safety due to essential maintenance work taking place.
