School’s out and we’re looking forward to welcoming thousands of families to DZG over the next few weeks.
Our four Colombian spider monkeys, Valentine, Charlie, Chester and Evita, are getting ready to enjoy some summer sunshine in their comfy hammock, while staff are gearing up to help educate visitors about some of the world’s rarest animals through our informative talks and feeds.
Our new summer holiday programme kicks off today and there’s even a chance to get up close and personal with a furry or scaly critter each day in the Discovery Centre and between 12 12.45pm and 2.15 4.30pm you can meet our animals down on the farm.
Our events kick off at 11.30am every morning and conclude at 4pm and cover some of our most popular species, so make sure you check out your What’s On guide given upon entry.
