About Welsh Mountain Zoo
The Welsh Mountain Zoo, or the National Zoo of Wales, is the oldest in Wales, starting as a family-owned business in 1963.
From there, it grew as a safe space for various kinds of animals. 37 acres of land make up the zoo for a stunning view of the Colwyn Bay coastline and Carneddau mountains in North Wales.
The zoo prioritises both the animals on-site as well as conservation efforts to support the survival of animals in the future. Breeding programmes and conservation projects, such as the ‘Here be Dragons’ scheme, embody the zoo’s goals and mission.
