Calderglen Zoo opened in 1982 and is home to over 50 different species, some of which are critically endangered. Being about an acre in size, the zoo specialises in small creatures. You'll discover meerkats, families of monkeys, noisy Kookaburras, cheeky Ring-tailed Coati, and Burrowing Owls. Come and meet the smallest tortoise and the rarest bird. Find out how Calderglen is helping to conserve these endangered animals. Learn about our work with the British and Irish Associations of Zoos and Aquaria (BIAZA).
Check our notice board for details of afternoon feeding times. During feeding times you have the chance to talk to the keepers about some of the animals.
