What is there?
This is just the beginning.....
Phase 1 - Complete!
This is the first step towards some grand plans! The first phase incudes using the small indoor space, where a bespoke meerkat enclosure has been built, for Meet The Meerkat experience days. This is a fantastic enclousure where the meerkats can exhibit their natural behaviours and visitors can see what the meerkats are getting up to through the windows.
Phase 1 also includes maximising the small space avaialable but creating a flexible space where static displays can be created for the public to come and see on specific dates throughout the year.
Phase 2 - Complete!
This is the second step towards a fully interactive and exciting place for visitors to come and see different animals. This involved becoming a fully licenced zoo by working with Cheshire East Council, a Zoo Inspector and vets too! This phase included the creation of a skunk enclousure as well as large guinea pig run. There is also a free space in the middle where Zoo2u will hold interactive animal sessions including Zoo Keeper Experience Days, Open Days, Photography Workshops and much more.
The phase will include the creation of an interactive welcome area and building of encloures... more to be revealed!.
