Ages: all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Step into your own acre of tranquil woodland garden when you visit Shaldon Zoo.

This small zoo has a big heart as it works hard to contribute to the survival of animals that are at risk of extinction in the wild. All the animals receive the highest standard of care and live in habitats as closely represented to what they would be in the wild as possible. During the keeper talks you can learn more about their different family groups and habits – such as how meerkats always have a designated look out to watch out for predators. See if you can spot which one it is!

There’s a lot to see, from lemurs, capuchins, slow Loris, a giant jumping rat, lots of different types of birds and monkeys. Learn all about some of the worlds’ most endangered night-time primates as you walk through the nocturnal house and remember to check out the extra experience days on offer if you’d like to try out being a keeper for the day.

Learn all about what it takes to protect animals in the wild!
