Avian Influenza Update
Due to the recent outbreak of Avian Influenza in Europe, we are following DEFRA advice and taking the precaution of closing the "Walkthrough" enclosure within the zoo. This will remain in place until 6th Jan unless advised otherwise. If you need further advice, or are concerned in any way, then please ask to speak to any of the Animal Team.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Conservation and Research department here at Dartmoor Zoo is incredibly active. We have links with many Universities and higher education institutions enabling us to conduct research into cognition, behaviour, conservation, animal welfare and the social sciences.
We are thrilled to announce that after many months of careful planning, Josie and Jasiri are now happily sharing the same enclosure!
