Sustainability Project

Solar Water System at Newquay Zoo

As a conservation charity we are working hard to reduce our energy consumption and use renewable energy by introducing as many sustainable practices as is feasible.

Many of our species are endangered due to deforestation and development pressures which contribute to climate change therefore it is fitting that the zoo should attempt to change the world for the better. Therefore since 2003 the zoo has been working on a Sustainability Programme.

The following demonstrates the zoo’s commitment to sustainability, by the having an Environmental Management System, which takes into account the social, environmental and financial costs of its actions, this is done through monitoring and measuring, then implementing plans to reduce its impacts.
