Bristol Zoo is given two new Hondas

Bristol Zoo Gardens and Wild Place Project have been presented with two new cars by the HSH Motor Group.

The keys to the Honda Jazz and Honda HR-V were handed over outside the iconic entrance to the 180-year-old Zoo.

The stylish models have both been given special finishes to celebrate their links with Bristol Zoo and its sister wildlife park Wild Place Project.

The Jazz has been branded to look like the coat of a giraffe as Wild Place Project has three giraffe.

And the Honda HR-V finish mimics the striking red, yellow and blue feathers of Rio the parrot at Bristol Zoo.

The distinctive eye-catching cars will be seen around the streets of Bristol and South Gloucestershire from first thing tomorrow (Thurs).

They will be used by staff and volunteers travelling between the 12 acre Zoo in Clifton and Wild Place Project near Cribbs Causeway as well as for meetings and events across Bristol and beyond.

Owain Cassidy, head of marketing and development at Bristol Zoo Gardens and Wild Place Project, said: “We are extremely grateful to the HSH Motor Group for their generosity in providing us with these two cars.

“They will be used every day carrying people between the Zoo in Clifton and our wildlife park Wild Place Project off junction 17 of the M5 as well as attending meetings and events around Bristol.

“The support shown by the HSH Motor Group is extremely important to us in helping to maintain and develop the Zoo and Wild Place Project both of which contribute to our important conservation and education work.”

Dawn Everett, Group Marketing Manager for HSH Motor Group, said: “We are delighted and proud to partner with Bristol Zoo Gardens and Wild Place Project and support them with the provision of these two new Honda vehicles as part of our partnership agreement.

“We look forward to further strengthening our relationship with Bristol Zoo Gardens and Wild Place project in the months ahead.”
