I've received a lot of emails recently about the reopening of zoos and I raised constituents concerns with Ministerial colleagues. This pandemic has been a real strain on zoos as they have been unable to furlough staff as they're needed to care for the animals.
I'm delighted to say that zoos will be reopening from 15 June!
The Government will be working closely with the zoo industry and is confident this can be done safely with safeguards and limits on visitor numbers, while providing families with more options to spend time outdoors, where the risk of transmission is far lower.
I know that this will be a welcome relief for many people.
