HALF TERM HALLOWEEN TREATS AT BLACKPOOL ZOO

Blackpool Zoo is gearing up for an action packed Halloween themed half term, with tantalising treats in store for visitors and animals alike! Pumpkin carving, Halloween trails, giraffe feeding, and additional bird displays will all take place from Monday 25th to Sunday 31st October. Each day at 1.30pm pumpkin carving workshops will be held in the elephant house. The completed creations will be filled with tasty treats and fed to different animals from 3.30pm. If last year’s results are anything to go by we know that the big cats will go crazy for their meat filled treats whilst the monkeys go mad for the mid-afternoon munchies. There will be prizes galore in the daily Halloween trails and the magical experience of hand feeding giraffes is expected to be a firm favourite with visitors young and old. As an extra special treat the ever popular bird displays are being held every day at 11.00am and 3.00pm. Jude Rothwell, Marketing and PR Coordinator at Blackpool Zoo, said: “We have a great programme of events lined up for half term and we are hoping to kick start our 2011 fundraising campaign for the EAZA Year of the Ape with the money from each activity. “With so many beautiful apes here at Blackpool Zoo, including our latest addition Meisie the Western Lowland Gorilla, we are proud to be supporting a campaign that is dedicated to the protection of these majestic creatures. “Our 2010 fundraising campaign for the Mediterranean Monk Seals was a huge success and we raised £6500 with the help of our generous visitors.” For details on prices for half term activities and how to book please visit www.blackpoolzoo.org.uk. -ends-
