And so winter arrives…

December 12, 2010 § Leave a comment

The past couple of weeks saw significant snow fall over central Scotland, including of course the Zoo. The drop in temperature also meant ice and so we did have to shut for a little while until paths were made safe. Thankfully there has been a thaw now, and the snow is gradually disappearing.

The penguins of course have been enjoying this winter weather, just like Mercedes and Walker the polar bears up at our Highland Wildlife Park. Many of the zoo animals don’t mind the snow, in fact it can be a novelty and enrichment for a while, as long as they have somewhere warm to retreat to. But of course its not great for our keepers who have to work out in the freezing cold and carry on doing their job no matter what.

What is happening with the blog? Sorry we missed a couple of postings due to the weather and staff changes. The blog will be continuing so please keep checking for latest news and extra information.

Christmas and New Year – make it a special day  – don’t forget (weather permitting) the Zoo is open every day, including Christmas Day and all through the New Year bank holiday weekend and if you want some last minute presents what about an adoption, membership or gift from our shop and at the same time you are helping us with our work in conservation & education, as all profits go to the charity that runs the Zoo, Park and projects in Scotland and abroad.
