A short while ago we conducted a short animal escape training exercise, which has now been completed.

These scenarios are an important part of our zoo license and help us ensure the continued safety of our staff, visitors and the animals under our care.

We’d like to thank our visitors for their patience during this time and hope they continued to enjoy their day with us.
