It is with sadness that we must announce the temporary closure of both Bristol Zoo Gardens and Wild Place Project due to the third national lockdown. We will be closing our doors to visitors from Tuesday 5 January 2021.
We understand that this closure may have interrupted plans for many of our visitors and supporters, and we will be in touch as soon as possible with our Members, Annual Pass Holders, and those that have booked tickets also.
Please be assured that our keepers and vet teams will continue working hard behind the scenes, to provide the high standard of care that our animals are used to.
Bristol Zoological Society, which operates Bristol Zoo Gardens and Wild Place Project, is a conservation and education charity and relies on the generous support of the public not only to fund its important work at Wild Place and Bristol Zoo, but also its vital conservation and research projects spanning four continents.
During the first national lockdown, we launched a fundraising appeal to support our work ‘saving wildlife together’. Now faced with a third closure, the BZS Appeal is more important than ever. We understand that these are difficult times and your priorities remain closer to home. But, if you are able to donate, please do, and let others know of the BZS Appeal. This is hugely appreciated. To find out more, or if you can help by making a donation, please visit https://bristolzoo.org.uk/bzsappeal.
Thank you for your support and understanding and please keep checking the Wild Place and Bristol Zoo websites and social media channels for updates.
