Devon’s Crealy Great Adventure Park, near Exeter is celebrating after being granted a Zoo Licence. Devon County Council has awarded the licence to the Park to allow it to keep a variety of exotic animals on site. The move is seen as a giant leap forward for the Devon attraction as a way of continually developing itself as the South West’s leading family destination.
The first of the Park’s zoo animals to steal the limelight is a breeding pair of Meerkats. The yet to be named Meerkats have recently gone on display to Park guests in their purpose-built enclosure, named Meerkat Manor.
The second phase of the zoo development will see the arrival of a family of Marmoset Monkeys coming to the Park in the next few weeks.
Kate Lewis, Animal Kingdom Manager at Devon’s Crealy said, “We are delighted to be able to bring our guests a selection of zoo animals. The meerkats have become very popular with our staff and we know they will be a huge hit with our guests too!
Not only will our guests be able to see the Meerkats and Monkeys close up, but they will also be able to learn about their history from the educational boards that are located around their enclosure and the daily educational talks conducted by our Animal Rangers.”
A term of the Zoo Licence now means that dogs are unable to visit Crealy Great Adventure Parks in Cornwall and Devon.
Devon’s Crealy is open daily from 10am – 6pm and offers six free days of Maximum Fun Guaranteed after the first paid visit. For further information please visit here.
