Welsh Mountain Zoo
The Welsh Mountain Zoo is also known as the National Zoo of Wales, the oldest and most established Zoo in Wales having been born as a small family run business by the Jackson family in 1963.
Set on one of the most picturesque and unique landscapes for any UK Zoo, the Welsh Mountain Zoo occupies some 37 acres of lush green landscape overlooking Colwyn Bay and the Carneddau mountains in North Wales. With over 140 species housed in our wonderful collection, to date we have welcomed over eight million visitors through our gates. We are passionate about our Zoo and the animals that live here with us. Conservation remains at the heart of our ethos, and the future survival of animals and their habitats continues to drive us ever forward. Whilst we want all our visitors to experience and enjoy everything the Zoo has to offer, we also want to share and raise awareness of some critical messages surrounding wildlife, the environment and the impact our actions have on the wider world.
