About Us

Wednesday 19th August is a very important occasion, as it's World Orang-utan Day!

Orang-utans, also known as 'people of the forest', are amongst the world's most endangered apes. Visit us on World Orang-utan Day on Wednesday 19th August to learn more about these incredible primates and how together we can help to ensure a future for this species.

On the day there will be extra activities that will be confirmed here at the start of the Summer!

With over 2,500 animals across 80 acres of beautiful, spacious grounds, you are in for a really wild time at Paignton Zoo! Located in South Devon, it is one of the South West’s most exciting visitor attractions and one of Britain’s top zoos. It’s a place to roam, discover and get in touch with your inner animal. Discover all your favourite species, big and small, including gorillas, orang-utans, giraffes, lions, tigers, crocodiles, red pandas and rhinos, and be ready for a few surprises along the way too. Come rain or shine the Zoo is a fun filled day out for all of the family and you will need a whole day to explore everything it has to offer.
