Tip from the giraffes: All those wanting to learn more about zoo should head for the ABOUT THE ZOO section, which is crammed with everything you could ever wish to know.

The zoo is now in the spring season

As spring falls between the winter and summer seasons, it is a time of moving animals from their winter facilities. All of the houses and enclosures are open, and animals can be viewed in most summer enclosures. Please note the African Safari is closed. However, the Lemur Restaurant  is open for lunches or snacks, as are some food stands at spring weekends. You can also hop on the miniature train at weekends, which chugs along leisurely all the way from the meerkats to the lion house.

To see what happens at other times of the year, click on the links in the top left corner of this page, or go directly to the summer, autumn or winter seasons.

Artificial techniques of reproduction could provide the last chance of survival for the most endangered mammal in the world – the northern white rhino. This conclusion from veterinary experts comes as a much-needed ray of hope to those involved in the conservation of the animals, both in Europe, the United States, and in Kenya – where three of the worlds last remaining six now live.
