We have launched a new accessible vehicle, which will be available for visitors to book throughout the summer.
We are due to hit the big screen on 29 June 2018 when ‘Zoo’ is released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland and to celebrate we are offering you the chance to win a ZOOPER prize.
The names that have been chosen both names highlight our capybaras South American heritage.
Last year we travelled back to the 1940’s wartime when the movie, ‘Zoo’ was filmed onsite. Zoo is due to be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 29 June 2018!
We are sorry to announce that a spider monkey has died after being clipped by a car on the motorway on Saturday night.
We celebrated another conservation success when two female red squirrels, born at the Cave Hill site, left the zoo as part of a release programme at Silent Valley Mountain Park.
Belfast Live recently visited us to film a day in the life of our zoo curator, Raymond Robinson. Find out more about life in his wellie boots.
