“What a fantastic place to visit! Honestly one of the best days out we’ve had. The site itself is beautiful and the enclosures are really impressive. Some highlights were seeing the bears playing in the pool, the lynx coming out from its hiding place and the red river hogs playing with a ball. We were really impressed with how relaxed and natural all the animals were. The people working there were all very nice too. Can’t wait to revisit.” (July, 2023)
“I’ve been coming to Bristol Zoo Project with my family since it opened, and we love it here – it just gets better and better. It’s been really exciting to find out about plans to create a new conservation zoo here, it’s so important to help the world’s most critically endangered species.
“Autumn is one of my favourite seasons and a fantastic time of the year for kids to get out and about and learn about nature – my little girl loves this season for that very reason too, there is so much to see.” Children's TV presenter, Andy Day, 2023
