We Bought a Zoo Book Signed edition


Buy an exclusive signed edition of our ‘We bought a zoo’ book, written by Benjamin Mee. This wonderful true story of our beautiful Dartmoor Zoo will give you the full picture of how we became the zoo we are today.

‘When Benjamin Mee decided to uproot his family and move them to an unlikely new home in Devon – a dilapidated zoo where over 200 exotic animals would be their new neighbours – his friends and colleagues thought he was crazy.

Benjamin’s dream was to refurbish the zoo and run it as a family business. But with a grand reopening scheduled for spring, there was much work to be done and none of it would be easy for these novice zookeepers.

Benjamin’s story is a remarkable tale of anxious wolves, awkward creditors, escaping big cats, the power of family and the triumph of hope over tragedy.’
