Bristol Zoo, which is temporarily closed during the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic lockdown in England, has announced today that it will be leaving the historic Clifton site in 2022 after 180 years there, and will relocate to its other premises the Wild Place Project near Cribbs Causeway. Bristol Zoological Society, which owns and operates both Bristol Zoo Gardens and Wild Place Project, says the move will create a world-class zoo and will safeguard the future of the organisation. The Clifton site will be sold. The Zoo says this follows years of declining visitor numbers to Bristol Zoo Gardens and the organisation having made an operating loss in four of the last six years. The plans have been announced after the second lockdown forced Bristol Zoo Gardens and Wild Place Project to close, after months of closure during the peak spring and summer months.
