If ever there was a city with a story to tell, it’s Bristol. Enveloped in the hills of South West England, it has its own unmistakable identity, carved out by passionate locals and spirited fans.
Bristol Zoo Gardens is the fifth oldest zoo in the world. They opened their doors to the public on Monday 11th July 1836 and since then they have welcomed over 90 million guests to the Zoo. They have helped save over 175 species from extinction in human care and in the wild. They are currently working on conservation and research projects across the world, from the Philippines, South Africa and back to our very own doorstep, the River Avon. Their award-winning education team has taught over 40 million schoolchildren the value of nature, wildlife and the impact our society has on the world.
