We’ve teamed up with Twycross Zoo to give one lucky reader the chance to win a family pass!
Join in the fun this half term for a host of exciting activities as the award-winning conservation charity celebrates ‘Love Your Zoo Week’.
This nationwide event organised by the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA), is the perfect opportunity for people to show their support for the hard work, dedication and care undertaken every day by the team at Twycross Zoo.
From 26th May to 3rd June families can enjoy an action-packed programme, including a Heart Trail, where visitors scour the 80-acre site in search of hidden hearts in a bid to win prizes!
As well as special conservation talks, the Leicestershire-based zoo will host its popular Keeper Talks, where visitors can meet the Twycross conservation experts and learn all about the animals in their care. The jam-packed calendar of daily talks will cover all sorts of species, great and small, and include everything from lemurs to zebras.
As members of BIAZA, Twycross Zoo is home to over 500 animals of 130 different species from all around the world, many of which are enrolled in conservation breeding programmes. As the only place in the UK where you can see all four great apes – chimpanzees, orangutans, gorillas and bonobos, the Zoo is also a member of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) and The Great Ape Survival Partnership (GRASP).
Twycross Zoo is open to the public from 10.00 to 18.00, 364 days a year. For more information and to book tickets visit www.twycrosszoo.org or call 0844 474 1777.
