Congrats to Chris!

We’re sending congratulations to Conservation Officer, Chris Leeson, who has been named as our latest Employee of the Month!

Zoo bosses presented Chris with a certificate and gift vouchers for his initiative in setting up the zoo’s Justgiving page to help us raise vital funds while we’re closed during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Over the last month we’ve been overwhelmed by your support and generosity and to date we’ve seen more than £9,000 donated – and it would be a fabulous testament to Chris if we could pass the £10,000 milestone today!


Every penny raised during the lockdown period will be spent on our 1,600-strong animal collection, who are continuing to receive the same continuous daily care from our dedicated keeping staff.

Notable achievement awards were also given to Adam Walker and Jodie Dryden.

Well done all!
