Born as a small family run business by the Jackson family in 1963, the Welsh Mountain Zoo - also known as the National Zoo of Wales, is the oldest and most established Zoo in Wales.
Set on one of the most picturesque and unique landscapes for any UK Zoo, the Zoo occupies around 37 acres of lush green landscape. The site overlooks the Colwyn Bay coastline and the Carneddau mountains in North Wales.
With around 80 species housed in our wonderful collection, we have welcomed over eight million visitors through our gates to date.
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
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.
