Let’s Turn the Tide: Saying ‘no’ to single use plastic.
The impact of marine plastics on our coasts, oceans, and the many species that depend on them (ourselves included) is now well documented. Although there is no doubt that this is a huge, global problem, it is also one that every single one of us can do something about.
What are we doing?
In 2017, we stopped selling single use plastic bottles in our zoos. We’re also working with suppliers to use biodegradable alternatives elsewhere, and to source products made from recycled plastic. We are actively involved in organising local beach cleans, alongside partner organisations with the same aims as ourselves. Underpinning all of this, is a drive to raise awareness amongst our guests and encouraging people to think about what they buy, and how they dispose of it once they’re done with it.
