Dudley Zoo receives three awards for outstanding achievement

The Castle Hill attraction has scooped three honours at the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums Awards, which celebrate outstanding achievements in the zoological world.

Their £20,000 Baboons on the Bank exhibit, which provides a natural hillside home for a breeding group of gelada baboons, was awarded a Silver Award during a special gala event at The Deep aquarium in Hull, while zoo photographer, Jason Skarratt, was awarded two runner up gongs in the photography competition. Zoo Director Derek Grove, said:

“We are delighted to have been awarded three accolades by BIAZA, especially in our 80th anniversary year.

“This proves Dudley Zoological Gardens is one of the country’s leading zoos and we’re proud our contributions towards conservation and animal welfare have been recognised by experts from within the zoo community.”
