Palm Oil Free

The production of Palm Oil is having increasingly devastating environmental effects across the world. Dartmoor Zoological Park is striving to to become 'palm oil free' through responsible purchasing of its restaurant, gift shop and cleaning products to lessen its contribution to this devastation.

The zoo is also increasing its public engagement on the effects of unsustainable palm oil production. Learn more about the issues here.
