Thanking Queen Elizabeth II

Dudley Zoo and Castle is closed to visitors today as we join the nation and commonwealth in saying farewell to Queen Elizabeth II.

We pay tribute to her long lifetime of faithful and selfless service and express our gratitude especially for her dedication to conserving the planet for future generations.
An inspiring monarch, who was well-known for being an avid animal lover, she was a passionate advocate for the environment around us, as well as being a keen supporter of the vital work of zoos to save species.
Her legacy will live on as we continue to strive to create a better future for wildlife.
Rest in peace, Ma’am.
