Return of the Blog?

OK - It's been a long while since we up-dated this blog which might give the impression that nothing much happens here. 

Presentation Team Supervisor, Adam.
(Not at his best)
Of course, nothing could be further from the truth; babies are born, new arrivals appear, enclosures get built... all the stuff you'd expect. We also have a whole new Presentation Team led by our new Supervisor, Adam wowing the general public with talks, animal feeds and activities for the kids.

Our new Education Officer, Amy is rewriting the book on zoo education coming up with a fantastic programme covering the whole curriculum. We've even built a new Education Centre where we'll be delivering a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Animal Management with Bicton College. And once that's underway we'll get cracking on a new reptile house.

And then of course there's We Bought a Zoo - the book and soon-to-be Hollywood movie starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johannson. To be honest it's difficult to know what to say about that because it all still seems a bit unreal. It's currently in post-production where director, Cameron Crowe is taking care of the finishing touches, not least of which is the soundtrack which like all Crowe movies promises to be a real gem in itself.

So, the reality is that so much happens here it's hard to find the time to write about it. Sometimes the most we can manage is a quick tweet or a photo and a quick status up-date on facebook. So, we were thinking - maybe we should just give ourselves a bit of a kick and make time to let you all know what's going on as and when it happens.

To get things rolling it would be great to know who's out there listening. The traffic stats for this blog are very modest at the moment, but enough to show that we do have some visitors. If you'd like to see more from this blog please let us know in the comments below. Just let us know what you want to hear about and we'll do our best to keep you informed.
