Wild Place Project can’t wait to welcome you!

Acres and acres of family fun

Take a breath of fresh air, stretch your legs and immerse yourself in nature. There are 50 beautiful acres to explore including woodlands, gardens and Tower Meadow. Great fun all-year round and whatever the weather – grab your wellies and jump in puddles as you explore!
Award-winning Bear Wood

Bears and wolves are sharing the same stretch of woodland at Wild Place Project! It’s a UK first for zoos and it’s the first time bears and wolves have lived together in British woodland for thousands of years. 

Wind through 7.5 acres of beautiful habitat on raised walkways, watching bears, wolves, lynxes and wolverines roaming below. With panoramic viewpoints, this is an immersive and award-winning experience unlike any other!

New arrivals!

Each year Wild Place Project welcome a whole host of adorable zoo babies, as part of their conservation breeding programmes. 2020 has been no exception!

Head to the Bénoué National Park exhibit to see young zebra foal Vera – named after Dame Vera Lynn and the first ever baby zebra at Wild Place.

Spot fluffy lynx kittens, Lox and Kinsey, as they play and climb high in the trees in Bear Wood. 

Bénoué National Park at Wild Place Project

Journey to the wilds of Cameroon, Africa, in the stunning Bénoué National Park exhibit. Take in the sweeping view of giraffes, zebras, red river hogs and elands roaming across the open grasslands.

Get up close and watch these magnificent animals reach to chomp leaves high overhead. 

Discover Madagascar

Soak up the sights and sounds of the Madagascan village, a conservation exhibit home to lemurs and pygmy goats! Marvel at five different species of mischievous lemur scamper around.

The lemur walkthrough is currently closed to aid social distancing, but you can still see them; check the website for updates. 

Cheetahs and geladas

Catch a glimpse of cheetahs at Wild Place Project, the world’s fastest land mammal that can achieve speeds of 0-60mph in just three seconds. The males rule over their spacious land! Near these sleek, elegant big cats, there’s Gelada Rocks, home to a troop of colourful gelada ‘baboons’.

During the first national lockdown, Bristol Zoological Society launched a fundraising appeal to support their work ‘saving wildlife together’. Now faced with a third closure, the BZS Appeal is more important than ever. These are difficult times and your priorities remain closer to home. But, if you are able to donate, please do, and let others know of the BZS Appeal.
As a conservation and education charity, Bristol Zoological Society relies on visitor income to fund their work at Wild Place Project and Bristol Zoo Gardens, and also their vital conservation and research projects spanning four continents.
Throughout their closure and beyond, you can support them by donating to the BZS Appeal. Visit bristolzoo.org.uk/bzsappeal to donate.
