Have your say on new zoo rules
16 January 2018
We are asking for submissions on a proposed standard that sets out the rules to help ensure zoo animals are contained safely.
The proposed new Standard for zoo containment facilities applies to facilities that hold one or more zoo animals for public exhibition and other reasons, such as education, conservation or research.
The standard sets out the rules zoos must follow to ensure zoo animals can’t escape into the wider environment, or pose a risk to visitors.
