- Zoo improvement works
Over summer and the last few months, we have made improvements throughout the zoo which we hope you have noticed.
Work was carried out to upgrade the fencing, climbing frames and tyre swing which the lemurs made the most of during the summer’s good weather.
Lots of our regular visitors to the zoo will be familiar with Hilo, our beautiful Moloch gibbon. Hilo’s outdoor habitat work is now finished with upgraded fencing, and impressive climbing frame and increased space.
Work was completed on a new off-show habitat for our Scottish wildcats. Eagle-eyed visitors may have noticed some of our feline friends sitting up high on a range of perches.
Work recently commenced on upgrading fencing at the lions’ outdoor habitat.
Works on a new outdoor tortoise area at the Reptile House is nearly complete.
