Mission Statement

Partners’ Mission Statement

The mission of Tropical Wings Zoo is to provide engaging experiences that inspire people to value and conserve our natural world.  With that in mind all the animals at our Zoo are all important ambassadors for their animal friends in the wild.  When our visitors see an animal at the Zoo, we hope that the wonder and amazement of these animals moves them to consider how they can help conserve wildlife now and in the future.  We hope to achieve this, with your continued support, passion and dedication whilst striving to provide the very best experience we can create for our visitors.

We want to continue improvements in our animals’ environment with exciting new enclosures that will stimulate and enrich their lives.

Over the next few years our intention is to continue to breed our endangered species of animals and birds and to expand our already successful native species conservation programme.

None of this can be achieved without the hard work and innovative ideas of our employees. Tropical Wings Zoo is entirely self-funded. We receive no grants or funding from local council or governing bodies so we have to work even harder to be the best.
