Green Tourism

We’re proud to have been awarded Gold in the Green Tourism Membership Scheme, aspiring to the highest standards of sustainability.

We’ve worked hard to ensure our impact on the environment is as low as possible by continuing to reduce our waste, introducing Terra Cycle points onsite for recycling. In Base Camp Gift Shop we sell bamboo reusable items, charity merchandise and the eco-friendly Moon cup along with many other items including some Fair trade home ware.


We’ve also been granted “Temporary Membership Under Construction” to the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA). Our membership means we share knowledge and learn from the leading zoos across the UK and Europe about everything from animal husbandry, welfare and nutrition, to exhibit design, education and conservation.


Our membership facilitates international collaboration in the collection, sharing and analysis of knowledge on wildlife. Together, members help to improve animal care and welfare, and inform species conservation.

We use the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) to establish best practices in caring for the individual and groups of species in their care. ZIMS is used to conduct day-to-day and ongoing programs throughout the global wildlife conservation community.
