As well as being a great family day out, Newquay Zoo is an education, research and conservation charity which is dedicated to protecting global wildlife heritage. We hope to inspire a life long respect for animals and the environment amongst our many visitors.

Newquay Zoo was first opened in 1969, run by Restormel Council until 1994 when it was purchased and privately owned by Mike Thomas.  After establishing the Zoo as a premier visitor attraction, he sold it in August 2003 to the Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust (WWCT),  a Devon based charity which also owns Paignton Zoo and Living Coasts in Torquay, as well as a number of nature reserves.

The Zoo is proud to support  overseas conservation programmes, helping conserve endangered species including red fronted macaws, pangolins and sloths. The Zoo also runs a highly successful breeding programme, so you may see baby animals on your visit.
