Opened in 1970 and still in the family, Blair Drummond Safari Park in Stirling in Scotland was created by Sir John Muir and Jimmy Chipperfield and built on Sir John Muir’s estate.

The park participates in co-ordinated breeding programmes of endangered animals with other zoos in Europe through its membership of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA), and works with the Scottish Wildlife Trust and Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels to monitor the presence of red squirrels on the estate.

On a visit, you can take a boat trip around Chimp Island, meet elephants, rhino, lions, tigers and giraffe as well as enjoy bird of prey displays.

      It seems Jimmy Chipperfield was involved in the setting up of Blair Drummond and that his son John was involved in running it when it began but there doesn’t appear to be a record of when that involvement stoppped – perhaps the attraction may be able to help with your query?
