We love autumn - the change of colour of the trees from green to a fantastic bright orange, the bright days with a nip in the air, the warm scarves and big jumpers.
Walking around the zoo, the change in seasons is noticeable, especially in our South America section where there are a high number of big trees looming over the animals' enclosure. This also signals one thing... Halloween is coming!
So what are we doing in the zoo? Halloween is a great opportunity for us in the Education Centre to create wonderful enrichment for the animals with pumpkins. Carving faces, fancy dress trails and scary walks can all be experienced over the Halloween half term. Zoo Academy participants will have to watch out for our special 'bump in the night' spectacular while locals to the area will have the chance to take a special night safari experience – to see what the animals get up to once the doors are closed.
Watch out this haunting Halloween!
