What precautions should I take when having contact with animals?


ALWAYS wash you hands after touching animals and their surrounding fencing with soap and warm water and dry them thoroughly. There are multiple toilet blocks with hand washing facilities, please use them regularly during your visit. Please supervise the washing of your children’s hands immediately after leaving an animal contact area, before eating and drinking and after touching footwear. Please note that hand sanitising gels are not a substitute for washing your hands with warm water and soap.

Food is not permitted to be eaten within the Animal Barn which is for your own safety as well as the animals. Do not feed any of the animals with your own food as this can cause diseases which put the animals at risk.

Please respect the animals and listen to instructions given by the animal owners and staff.
