Our Meerkats are currently on holiday whilst they await a brand new habitat. This has been necessary to make space for the sea lion enclosure next door, which is also getting an upgrade. Not to be outdone by their flippered friends, the Meerkats have insisted on a bigger, better enclosure with multiple indoor and outdoor areas, as well as a special space to welcome visitors enjoying our up-close ‘animal experiences’.
The new exhibit should be ready for our ten lively meerkats to return in the summer. We can’t wait to welcome them all back and see their reaction to their new home. They were a bit jealous of the sea lions, but we think they’ll settle down when they see their new meerkat mansion!
