Swing by and have a ZOOPER day out with your little monkeys to celebrate your local zoo on 26 - 28 May and 2 - 3 June.

The new programme complements the Northern Ireland curriculum and suits all ages and abilities from nursery to further education level. It is designed to inspire future generations of children to discover the world around us and to become champions for wildlife conservation.

Last admission to the zoo will be at 2.30pm on Friday 1 June 2018. The zoo will close at 4pm to allow us to prepare for our Dreamnight event.

We recently announced the birth of two capybaras and need YOUR help naming the new arrivals!

Keep your ‘little explorers’ busy this summer with the adventure of a lifetime at our Zoo’s Explorers’ Club!

Our new giant anteater baby was born on 2 November 2017 to parents, Pancho and Kara and can now be spotted sharing their home with some South American neighbours including capybara and Darwin’s rhea.

Ever fancied feeding fish to penguin, lunch to a lemur, or feeding Finn the giraffe? Get closer to wildlife than ever before!

You can now join our family by applying for a membership online. Fill out our form and get a whole year of free entry and other great benefits.
