South Lakes Safari Zoo

South Lakes Safari Zoo

I have had great pleasure in visiting the Safari Zoo in Dalton today. There has been a massive amount of negative publicity in the press over the last few months following a critical government report into the running and former management of the zoo. From what I saw today, the new management team are doing a brilliant job making improvements to the zoo’s layout and addressing the animal welfare recommendations made in the government report.

I also met with a number of the zoo staff who are so passionate and dedicated to the animals I truly hope the new management team gets the support and backing to turn this sorry story around and get the zoo back to being a high-quality major tourist attraction in the Furness area.
