Here at Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens we have a responsibility to operate in a sustainable manner.

We achieve this by:

  • Increasing awareness of conservation, biodiversity and sustainable use issues
  • Providing habitat or aids to native species in and around the zoo
  • Encouraging environmentally responsible behaviour by visitors
  • Forging partnerships with other zoos and other bodies, which are active in areas relevant to the conservation of indigenous wildlife



There are two major types of conservation: In-situ conservation and Ex-situ conservation.

  • In-situ conservation is helping protect and save habitats around the world where animals live naturally, i.e. in their natural environment
  • Ex-situ conservation is helping the species away from its natural habitat
