We’ve just completed the annual stock take of hundreds of animals!

It has been a busy time here recently as the Animal Team have completed the annual stock take of animals.

The animals, which include 147 different species are counted every day as part of the daily tasks, with the annual stock take being uploaded to the BIAZA (British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums) data base. This database is used for zoos, wildlife parks and aquariums to share details of their collections with each other.

“Some of the animals, like the Squirrel Monkeys, are easy to count as they just want to join in the process and are naturally nosey,” commented Director, Stephen McKeown, “Others, particularly the birds, can be a challenge as they just love to fly around!”.
