Fife Zoo is now open!
Why not visit today? Don’t forget to keep an eye out for our agoutis, armadillos, lovebirds, lemurs and many more exotic and endangered species.
Join us on this wild adventure…
Our Story (so far)
We’ve already developed our animal kitchen and feed store, veterinary hospital rooms, quarantine facilities, staff/volunteer room and offices.
The next major development is our Discovery Center including multi-purpose classrooms, meeting rooms and conference facilities – all essential for a modern zoo! And then, of course, there’s the animals . . .
Creating a home for animals
Our biggest job is to create new, purpose-built, natural habitats that promote natural behaviours, including mixed species exhibits, walk through and immersive exhibits, whereby visitors can become immersed in a series of mini-safaris, with people and animals brought together in the same habitat.
The zoo will be split into geographic zones, allowing people to explore a variety of habitats, from the African savannah to Asian rainforests and the South American pantanal. We are already well underway with our African section, home to meerkats, porcupines, lemurs and more!
Fife Zoo is a member of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA), and will become members of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA). This will allow us to participate in all of the breeding programmes for animals living at the zoo, as well as making sure they get the best care and husbandry and be part of a huge variety of field conservation projects!
We are taking all necessary precautions in line with government and public health advice in response to the Covid-19 situation and encouraging our visitors to do the same. For more information, please click here!
Soft Play Fire
Unfortunately, one week after re-opnening from the COVID-19 lockdown we experienced a devastating fire at the zoo. Fortunately, this area was closed to the public and no animals were hurt. For more information, please click here!
