evenTT 17 Twycross Zoo

Post by Wallsendmag » Wed Jan 25, 2017 10:19 pm

This year's evenTT will be held at Twycross Zoo on 9th July tickets are available in the club shop.

Twycross Zoo was founded in 1963 by pet shop owners Molly Badham and Natalie Evans, after the pair’s increasing zoological collection outgrew their three quarter acre site in Hints, Staffordshire.
Twycross Zoo is now renowned as a World Primate Centre and has a wide variety of monkeys and apes including the UK’s only group of bonobos. We have breeding groups of many endangered primate species so we often have babies and toddlers playing around in our great ape groups, and in many of our monkey groups. We also hold a range of other species including Asian elephants, snow leopards, penguins, meerkats, tapir, hyena, and the world’s rarest big cat, the Amur leopard.
Set in more than 80-acres, we have around 500 animals of almost 150 species to see, including many endangered animals and native species in the Zoo’s Nature Reserve. You can walk with our ring-tailed lemurs in their walk-through enclosure; see our troop of emperor tamarins leap above your head in their treetop exhibit, and watch our Humboldt penguins take their daily walk. Our keepers present regular talks and feeds where you can learn a bit more about some of our animals such as the chimpanzees, Asian elephants and South American coatis.
In 2013, we won BIAZA’s Best Sustainable Zoo or Aquarium and Best Education Project (public and general visitor) awards, and were commended in the Significant Advance in Husbandry and Welfare, Significant Advances in Zoo and Wildlife Medicine, and Best Education Project (Schools and Educational Institutions) categories.
Our conservation breeding programmes flourished last year as we welcomed a critically endangered Western lowland gorilla, an endangered bonobo along with many more zoo babies including two endangered snow leopard cubs, meerkat pups, our first ever spectacled owl chick, and several babies in many of our primate groups.
Our world-class Himalaya Centre delivers fantastic food in a 300 seat all-day restaurant overlooking a Himalayan themed snow leopard enclosure and shopping in the Bazaar. It also plays host to conference facilities in Windows on the Wild. We also have several other eateries on site, including the Twycross Fish Bar, the Dome and indoor picnic facilities in Cockatoo Café.
We are open 364 days a year (we only close on Christmas Day).
The Zoo is located only four-miles from junction 11 of the M42/A42 (which links the M1 and M6) making it readily accessible from anywhere in central England

Date noted, although I've just realised it clashes with a planned local event unfortunately :(

Woo hoo, the signatures are back! :D

Excellent news Twycross Zoo is just down the road from us. I should be there with Josh videoing again and he may even have an Audi TT then so he can park with us all for once
