We are always developing Colchester Zoo with both our animals and visitors needs in mind; with the aim of conserving endangered species.

Each and every visit made to Colchester Zoo not only supports the ongoing developments and animals in situ but also assists the zoos charity, Action for the Wild, help conservation projects worldwide.  Without your visits this vital work would not be possible so thank you very much indeed.
