Newquay Zoo welcomes locals to visit for half price!
Monday 5th March, 2018
The weekend of 10th and 11th March is ‘Locals half price weekend’ at Newquay Zoo. The weekend will give Cornish residents the opportunity to visit the zoo for half price ahead of the summer season.
By presenting proof of address, locals can get in for half price, explore the charity zoo, see some amazing animals and learn about the vital conservation work taking place there.
The opportunity is open to everyone from Penzance to Plymouth – any residents with a TR or PL postcode can take advantage if they show a utility bill with proof of residency. Tickets can be purchased at the admissions desk over the weekend but are even cheaper online.
The Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust, the charity that runs Newquay Zoo, Paignton Zoo and Living Coasts in Torquay, supports conservation projects in the UK and overseas.
Its flagship project is called Selamatkan Yaki (“Save the Yaki”), which works with the Critically Endangered Sulawesi black crested macaque (known locally as Yaki) on the island of Sulawesi. The zoo will run a number of talks and feeds throughout the day that will allow visitors to learn more about these special animals.
Marketing Coordinator Rebecca Blake commented: "We look forward to welcoming everyone at the weekend - we have lots of interesting animals to discover. All you need to do to get your half-price tickets is bring proof of residency, or go online. It’s going to be a fantastic couple of days!" Newquay Zoo is a registered charity.
