We are celebrating the arrival of three critically endangered white-belted ruffed lemurs and we need your help naming the wide-eyed wonders.

Swing by with your 'little monkeys’ this bank holiday weekend for some Monkey Madness.

The latest addition to Belfast’s herd was born to mother, Daisy and father, Finn, on Sunday 7 May 2017 after a 15 month pregnancy.

Our birthday packages have everything you need for a zooper celebration.

Our 34th annual photo competition launched on Monday 10 April. Come along and take your best snap.

Ever fancied feeding a penguin, having lunch with a lemur or getting up close to a herd of giraffes?

If you fancy mucking in or mucking out with our giraffes and elephants then here’s your chance.
