Conservation at Ponderosa Zoo

Our mission is to inspire people of all ages and abilities through Zoo-led education and engaging experiences, helping to ensure the survival of species and biomes for future generations with the aim of contributing towards active conservation. We aim that all of our customers have a fantastic day out whilst learning about species in the wild and in captivity through educational signage and keeper talks which take place throughout school holidays.

You may have seen some transects dotted around the Zoo! We are currently doing our own Conservation project where we are identifying what species of insect we have in specific areas, we will be collecting data for a 12-month period. When the 12 months is complete, we will be creating bug boxes, bug hotels, etc., and doing a further 12-month study to see if we have attracted any new species with our small builds!
