Breakfast with the lemurs at Newquay Zoo

Newquay Zoo is giving people an exciting opportunity to wake up with the zoo and enjoy a delicious breakfast with the lemurs, along with the chance to explore the zoo before it opens to the general public.

The Wake Up With Newquay Zoo event will take place on Wednesday 24 May, from 9am until 10:30am. Visitors will be able to enjoy a tasty al fresco breakfast by the lake, includingpastries, pancakes, fruit platters, breakfast baps and waffles,while watching the lemurs have their own breakfast!

At the same time, Newquay’s keepers will be doing a special lemur talk, where people will be able to learn all about these amazing animals and get introduced to some of the biggest characters on Lemur Island.

This will be followed by an exclusive guided tour of Newquay Zoo, where ticket holders will have an uninterrupted view of all the animals before the zoo officially opens for the day.

Katie White, Newquay Zoo Events Manager, said: “Lemurs are a real favourite with our visitors here at Newquay, and this special event will be a brilliant way to see them – along with the rest of the animals – in a way like never before.”

Newquay Zoo is home to three different species of lemur: black and white ruffed lemurs, ring-tailed lemurs and crowned lemurs. All of these species are endangered, with black and white ruffed lemurs being classed as critically endangered in the wild.

Newquay Zoo is part of Wild Planet Trust, a conservation charity that helps to halt species decline. Several of Newquay’s lemurs are in breeding programmes, and the zoo has had a good deal of success, including the birth of black and white ruffed lemur triplets last spring.

Tickets to the event cost £35 per person and spaces are limited, so please book in advance. To book, go to:
