A leech breeding programme is underway at Bristol Zoo Gardens marking the first to be seen in a UK Zoo.
Lemurs are in trouble and are disappearing fast. So much so, that your great grandchildren may never be lucky enough to see them in the wild. Attempts to reintroduce captive-raised lemurs to the wild may be necessary within a decade. In our latest conservation project, we will set the lemurs here at the Zoo and at Wild Place Project exciting tasks and challenges to see if it's possible. But, we need your help to get our Lemur Boot Camp started!
Afia and her surrogate, Romina, took their first trip together outside on Monday (31 October) following a successful weekend of further bonding.
The animals at Bristol Zoo Gardens have been given carved pumpkins and spooky piñatas as a special treat in the run-up to Halloween.
The future of lemurs could be safeguarded, and the IUCN Red List status of a number of species downlisted, thanks to a significant donation to the IUCN’s ‘Save our Species Fund’ from a private Geneva-based foundation.
From giant tortoises weighing over 30 stone (190kg), to 15ft pythons – Bristol Zoo’s Reptile House is home to creatures of all shapes and sizes.
