National Insect Week returns in 2020

Exmoor Zoo

Exmoor Zoo

Exmoor Zoo, North Devon's award winning family zoo, is home to over 200 species of rare and endangered animals & birds. Its natural design ensures a surprise around every corner. Why not take a 'Walk on the wildside' with us, become a 'keeper for the day' or join in the daily feeding, keepers talks and animal contact sessions. If you'd like to help us help the little things that make the planet work please contact or visit us during NIW. We're sure you'll get bitten by the insect bug!
