Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm Celebrates 25 Years with New Vision

The popular zoo farm attraction outside of Bristol is developing its conservation and education programmes

It’s a happy birthday to Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm in Wraxall this year. The animal attraction just outside of Bristol, is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

The big birthday has been the ideal opportunity for the charity to launch a new vision and 5 year strategic plan.

Zoo Director Larry Bush described the 25 year journey of the zoo as “incredible.”

“We’re a modern, inclusive conservation zoo with a special focus on people, he said. “We’re continually learning and developing to give even more exciting experiences for visitors, to inspire and support an appreciation of our natural world.

“Our new, ambitious strategy will help us realise our vision over the next 5 years, with significant benefits locally, nationally, and internationally. We look forward expectantly to this new chapter in our story and invite our visitors and the general public to help shape it with us.”

The tourist attraction has grown from a family-run dairy farm when it first opened in 1999 and into a conservation charity during 2023.

It houses over 120 different species, including elephants, lions, bears and giraffes.

The zoo describes its new vision as being one which will ‘protect wildlife and the natural world and to provide an oasis of inspiration and hope for people’.

The forthcoming work will include upgrades to facilities and a review of the animal collection plan. The directors are also planning a greater focus on international conservation and development of the zoo’s education offering.
