The State government position about the re-opening of zoos is changing rapidly.

Technically we are now able to re-open the zoo from today - June 1.

However, we are still only able to open to 20 people.  We have done the sums and this would mean that we would lose more money than we are losing now if we opened to just 20 people. 

In conjunction with our zoo associations, and some of our colleagues, we have asked the government to allow us to open to more people.  There is scope for us to do so under the new guidelines.

To date we have not heard back from the State government Health Department as to whether we will be permitted to do so and, if so, what the requirements are going to be.

We will update this website, and our Facebook page, just as soon as we have any news.

In the meantime, thank you all for your support - it has been tremendously important to us.
