“The lions are one of our most popular species on site and their one-acre paddock is one of our most innovative enclosures. The lions are well settled in there and this additional raised platform will allow visitors greater views of them from all angles.”

Dudley Zoo is home to three Asiatic Lions - an endangered species with only 500 left in the wild.
