Zoo Detectives

Calling all Zoo Detectives! We need your help at Bristol Zoo Project this February half-term (10 to 18 February)!

A mystery animal has travelled through the zoo and we need to find out who the culprit might be. Fear not, the suspect has left behind some clues. Was it a beaver, water vole, badger, roe deer, hedgehog or otter? We need you to search the zoo.

Along the trail you’ll spot the zoo’s amazing animals including giraffes, zebras, cheetahs, lemurs and gelada baboons, and learn fascinating facts about British wildlife.

Children dressed up as zoo detectives will receive 20% off admission. Use code DETECTIVE20 when booking online.
