The Zoo was founded in 1923 by Herbert Whitley, and when he died in 1955 the Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust was set up in his name. Paignton Zoo is owned by the Trust and it also owns Living Coasts in Torquay, Newquay Zoo in Cornwall, Primley Park and Clennon Gorge in Paignton, and Slapton Ley National Nature Reserve.
So much to see, beautifully laid out and loads of interesting information on all the animals.
Volunteers were very friendly and keen to share information about the animals.
Very good clean zoo, lots of animals, fun filled packed day!
