Ungulates kitchen makeover

Ungulates keepers can now prepare animal food in a new-look kitchen – thanks to the handiwork of our two volunteer carpenters.

Geoff Benbow and Rob Jurczenko have kitted out the kitchen next to the tapir enclosure with new worktops, cupboards and a sink.

Section Leader Jay Haywood, pictured left in the kitchen, said: “The old work surfaces and cupboards were getting quite old and needed replacing.

“Now we have new surfaces and plenty of cupboard space which makes the job of preparing food for all the animals in the ungulates section much easier.

“Geoff and Rob have done a great job and we’re grateful for their help.”
