Our mission

Newquay Zoo is an education, scientific and conservation charity dedicated to protecting our global wildlife heritage and inspiring in people a respect for animals, plants and the environment.

The Zoo's mission will be achieved by:

  • Keeping and breeding animals and propagating plants that are under threat or no longer exist in the wild
  • Offering all visitors an exciting and informative wildlife experience
  • Providing a resource for educational purposes, both within the Zoo and externally
  • Contributing to the conservation of wildlife and the natural environment both within the Zoo and beyond
  • Supporting and promoting the work of the Zoo’s owning body, the Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust
  • Encouraging Zoo staff and volunteers to achieve their fullest potential to enable the Zoo to meet its objectives
  • Promoting sustainability of local and global communities and their environment and managing the Zoo to a plan to support these ideals
