Exmoor Zoo donated £5,000 towards the purchase of the BIAZA Reserve.
Conservation and WLT support
Exmoor Zoo has always raised money for charitable conservation projects and they see the BIAZA Reserve as something special that they are proud to be part of. As a zoo they maintain many South American species, particularly the small squirrel like monkeys (marmosets and tamarins) from the rainforest of the Amazon.
Exmoor Zoo says:
"It is great to be part of a project to reverse this, and protect the environment for generations to come. Visit us, help create, conserve and maintain the BIAZA Reserve, learn a little and enjoy the company of our animals. We look forward to greeting you!"
About Exmoor Zoo
Exmoor Zoo is lucky as it is set in the unspoilt countryside of North Devon. Their species get to enjoy the quality weather from the North Atlantic and the warming Gulf Stream drift. A lot of their animals and birds on display are tolerant of high humidity, similar to that of a rainforest - they just need a little dry warming time through the winter.
