Love Your Zoo Week begins

29th May 2023

Love Your Zoo Week 2023 kicks off today!

This nationwide event by BIAZA (the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums) takes place every year to celebrate the essential contribution of zoos to conservation, science, animal care, and education.

Here at Emerald Park, our mission is to create adventure and serve our community through nature conservation. Our accredited zoo is home to over 250 animals, and our team of zookeepers and award-winning educators help us to fulfil our mission daily.

But what makes our zoo unique?
