A visit to Newquay Zoo!

Located in Trenance Gardens in Newquay, Newquay Zoo is a must visit whatever the weather! We spent the morning exploring the zoo and learning about the important conservation work the zoo does as part of Wild Planet Trust, a charity helping to halt species decline.

After starting the day with a delicious breakfast box from Café Lemur, filled with pastries, fruit, waffles and more sweet and savoury snacks, we headed out to explore, starting with the family of Lemur’s on the Island opposite the café. We meandered through The Oriental Garden where we encountered a family of noisy Asian short-clawed otters, making it known that they thought it was feeding time!

We continued through the zoo and learnt all about the animals facing extinction and how Wild Planet Trust is helping to halt species decline through their START programme (Safe Havens, Togetherness, Action, Research and Talk). We ended at the new Carpathian Lynx couple, a female, Kicsi, and a male Onyx who arrived this year, in the hope that they will breed.

Newquay Zoo is the ideal day out when you are looking for a break from the beach days, with 130 species to discover it is no wonder it is one of the best things to do in Newquay! From penguins and lemurs to an adorable red panda and a tropical reptile house, there is something for every animal lover.
