A cracking Easter!

We’re looking forward to a cracking Easter with the relaunching of Lemur Wood and baby animals aplenty!

We’re gearing up to reopen the one-acre walkthrough exhibit on Saturday which has undergone a £100,000 revamp and is home to more than 20 free-roaming rare Madagascan lemurs.

Marketing Manager Andrea Hales said: “We have plenty going on for all the family throughout the school holidays and we’re especially egg-cited to unveil our new-look walkthrough this weekend.

“Visitors can also hunt out the Easter bunny in our trail, spot our many recent newborns which include lemurs, barbary sheep and geladas, take part in colouring crafts in the farm barn and restaurant and meet our costumed character Bertie Bunny who will be making appearances throughout the Easter weekend.

“Plus there’ll also be tasty treats for our young visitors as we’ll be handing out free chocolate between Good Friday and Easter Monday, which our cheeky ring-tailed lemurs tried to get their hands on first.”

But that’s not all as each day throughout the Easter break there’ll also be extra talks and feeds where visitors can learn about the zoo’s conservation work with some of the world’s rarest animals.

We hope you’ll join us – it’s going to be egg-cellent!
