We have eight temperature-controlled aquarium rooms (with both seawater and freshwater supply) and 12 rooms for holding other vertebrates, all are Home Office-designated and maintained by dedicated animal husbandry staff.

The aviaries are designed to provide an appropriate environment that is stimulating, comfortable and free from extraneous stress. Benefitting from world recognised expertise in environmental enrichment, our facilities allow captive birds to show as natural behaviour as possible.
