The National Zoological Society of Wales runs the Welsh Mountain Zoo – the National Zoo of Wales in Conwy, North Wales.

Amongst the society’s successful research projects has been an investigation into the possibility of the captive breeding and release of red squirrels as an aid to the species’ survival in the British Isles.

Visitors can learn about other endangered species from around the world such as snow leopards, red pandas and Sumatran tigers and highlights include Lemur Lookout, the walk-through lemur enclosure that is the first of its kind in Wales.

The zoo also focuses on the rescue, care, rehabilitation and release of grey and common seals found around the Irish Sea coasts.
