Everything we do has an impact and leaves a footprint. We know that the ‘human footprint’ on our Wild Planet is damaging nature and causing species the world over to disappear.
If we all tried to leave a smaller footprint we’d be in a much better place. Thankfully there are steps that we can all take to help.
What are we doing?
In 2017, we stopped selling single-use plastic bottles in our zoos. We’re 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 among our guests and encouraging people to think about what they buy, and how they dispose of it once they’re done with it.
