How we are operating

This document has been compiled following the latest Government advice and regulations.

Why is the zoo’s gift shop closed but you are operating deliveries online?

Whilst non-essential retail was instructed by the Government to close on 30th March 2020, local retailers selling goods online may continue to operate following these two conditions: As long as they do so within guidelines already issued for non-essential business, and follow additional guidelines for safe, socially-distanced deliveries.

How are you protecting your staff whilst they are fulfilling these orders and deliveries?

We are ensuring the following:

  • We have a maximum of two people together on a business premises or in a team working outside.
  • Every member of staff will maintain a distance of two metres from each other and every other person, both while travelling to and from the place of work and at all times during the course of the work.
  • No member of staff will increase the risk of spreading COVID-19 to their household as a result of their work.
  • Easy access to hand washing facilities periodically during the day, including alcohol-based hand sanitiser before and after each delivery. Good hand hygiene is the first and most important line of defence, and we will ensure staff are aware of its importance alongside respiratory hygiene.
  • Use of cloth face masks is mandatory.

How can I pay for my goods?

  • We will take payment by card via the checkout section of our website.
  • Phone orders can be placed by calling +44 1534 860071, Monday – Friday, 9:00 – 17:00.
  • We will not be accepting any cash or card payments in person.

How are you protecting your customers whilst completing their deliveries?

Local delivery will be made by a Jersey Zoo delivery driver, or by Jersey Post.

We are pro-actively planning how we will deliver goods in a way that maintains a social distance of 2 metres between workers, and between workers and customers, at all times. This may include:

  • Explaining to customers how the delivery will work by phone or email in advance.
  • Only one person in a delivery vehicle at any one time.

All orders outside of Jersey will be shipped with Jersey Post.


If an item being delivered is too large to fit through the letterbox what provisions are you taking to ensure safe receipt of goods?

  • Where a delivery is too large to fit through a letterbox, we will place it at the customer’s door, or in a safe, outdoor location appropriate to the item.
  • We will knock on the door and step aside to a safe distance while the customer retrieves their item(s), or confirms delivery if the item is being left outside. This will ensure the item is delivered safely and securely.
