Still time to snap!

We’re having a great Love Your Zoo Week here at DZG and have already received dozens of entries for our photography competition.

As part of BIAZA’s campaign to encourage people to visit their local zoo over the school holidays, we’re inviting visitors to grab their camera and snap their favourite zoo resident during the week and there’s still time to enter as the deadline isn’t until Sunday.

The winning entry will win an adoption of the pictured animal.

Photographs can be emailed to

Half term visitors can also take part in a heart trail around the 40-acre site for the chance to win some of our limited edition 80th anniversary memorabilia.

And there’s crafts in the Discovery Centre’s rainforest room as well as meet a critter opportunities in addition to our daily animal talks and feeds.

Come and love DZG as much as we do and claim your free Love Your Zoo Week sticker as you learn more about our conservation, education and research work with some of the rarest animals in the world.

Love Your Zoo Week runs from May 27 – June 4.
