Here at Bridlington Animal Park we are committed to protecting our local environment and future-proofing the park to reduce our carbon impact as well as teaching the next generation how to care for the natural world and become more sustainable. We are the proud winners of multiple awards for our sustainable efforts.
We use energy efficient light bulbs – Our on-site maintenance have been able to replace almost all inefficient light fittings with new LED light fittings and energy efficient bulbs. These lights are reducing our environmental impact and energy consumption.
We use recycled enrichment – Our keepers are always looking for innovative ways to enrich the lives of all our animals. They often use waste products from local businesses, reducing both our environmental footprint as well as supporting local business in costs of disposing of waste. Sustainable enrichment has included using Christmas trees from local garden centres, scrap wood and old boxes
We help local businesses recycle – We accept donations from local businesses of fruit and vegetables from a number of local suppliers which can be fed to our animals.
We recycle – Approximately 95% of waste on site is recycled, our aim is to limit the amount of waste sent to landfill.
We recycle water – Bridlington Animal Park uses rainwater harvesting for several exhibits on site. Surplus rainwater is passed through our recycling system and used around the rest of the zoo.
Education is important to us – We have a dedicated education team who work with local schools teaching them about animals and conservation in workshops. We run regular educational events and have a free nature trail around the zoo.
