UPDATED 17 November:

Following the latest Government advice, we kindly ask all visitors aged 12+ to wear face masks in indoor areas at the zoo to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please continue to adhere to physical distancing guidelines and make use of the many hand sanitiser stations throughout the zoo. Our collective actions are crucial in protecting ourselves, our loved ones and higher risk islanders. Thank you for your support and understanding.

The zoo is a predominantly open-air, 32-acre site with wide pathways and large open areas and we hope that our visitors enjoy exploring the beautiful grounds, seeing our animals and reconnecting with nature.

We have implemented a number of new precautions and followed the Government of Jersey’s advice so that we can provide a safe and enjoyable visit for everyone. Some of these measures include:

- Protective screening at contact points

- Floor markings to manage queues

- Hand sanitiser points around the zoo

- Virtual Keeper Talks

We are pleased that our outdoor children's play area and the majority of our indoor animal houses are now able to open. However, the indoor children’s play area and sandpit remain closed, and the aye-aye and giant jumping rat enclosures will be closed for now.

Please note, booking tickets to visit the zoo is no longer required.
