Fife Zoo closes for Storm Babet

Red Weather Warning Causes Fife Zoo to Close on Friday

We have made the decision to close for the day on Friday 20th October as the Met Office extended Amber and Red Weather warning amidst the arrival of Storm Babet across most of Scotland.

We are still hoping to be able to launch our Halloween Spooktacular event on Saturday as planned, but this is dependent on the development of the weather warnings. Red weather warnings are now in place for Friday across Perth and Dundee, meaning a potential ‘danger to life’.

Mike said; “The safety of our staff, animals and guests is our absolute priority at Fife Zoo. We have made the decision to close to the public on Friday in the interest of safety. We are hoping that the weather will improve ahead of the exciting launch of our Halloween season on Saturday, but ultimately we will be guided by the advice and communications from the Met Office and the police. Our dedicated team of zookeepers will be on hand to ensure the safety and wellbeing of over one hundred animals within our care.”

”Our animals will be kept in their specially designed indoor accommodation throughout the duration of the weather warning for both their own safety and public safety. We have a dedicated team of zookeepers who will be on site as normal to ensure that the animals remain calm and receive all of their usual feeding, medication and environmental enrichment.”
