The listed building, adjacent to the Triple Tecton enclosure housing Sumatran tigers, an Asiatic bear and Sulawesicrested macaques, now offers spacious disabled access and baby changing area following a four-week £13,000 renovation project.

DZG CEO Peter Suddock said: “By installing modern facilities we have adapted a building that had been out of use for many years and is part of our ongoing across-site restoration work with our unique Tecton collection.

“It also adds a much-needed facility for visitors at a very popular big cat junction, alongside snow leopards, tigers and lynx.”   He added: “The work, which has been completed thanks to European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) match funding, was completed as part of a major development programme which also includes information and customer signage, car park facilities and a welcome plaza.”
