Lorikeet Lookout opens at Dudley Zoo

Dudley Zoo has marked 'Love Your Zoo' week by officially opening its Lorikeet Lookout.

The move to repurpose the former 'Monkey Tails' building is the final part of the Zoo’s £200,000 redevelopment plan. The exhibit is now home to free flying Australian Rainbow Lorikeets, which visitors are able to feed them from pots of nectar, made by keepers each day. Zoo Director, Derek Grove, said:

“We’ve taken the building back to housing birds, as that is what it worked best for and we’re thrilled to introduce a new species to Dudley Zoo and a new interactive element for visitors.

“The Rainbow lorikeets look absolutely stunning and we know they work very well in walkthrough exhibits.

Love Your Zoo Week, which runs until Saturday, is organised by the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums. It aims to encourage people to visit their zoos, aquariums or wildlife parks.
