Get the lions at Bristol zoo a bigger/better enclosure

Please sign this petition to get Bristol Zoo to agree to get a bigger, better, more suitable outside enclosure for their lions.

Why is this important?

These poor animals are in a tiny enclosure, with no real outside space to roam like lions naturally should. They pace up and down, staring at their spectators with blank expressions. There is no need for them to be in such a small space, when the Zoo own land at the Wild Place and have a whole meadow (purely for picnics) as I gather. Give these beautiful creatures some dignity and space and let Bristol Zoo prove they are the "caring" Zoo they claim they are.

Bristol Zoo Gardens, College Road, Bristol


Reasons for signing

  • This enclosure is the equivilent of having a dog in a jail cell. Sure they have space too walk around but there is no space to run, play or show any signs of natural habitat. All the lions do is lay on a rock.... rest of the place was dirty and some animals looked in bad condition. Bristol zoo needs to take a look at longleat or marwell....
  • I have been in many places with animals but I have to say I was upset when I visited Bristol Zoo not just about lions...general...animals look unhappy!!!small space,dirty,smelly!I thought I should do something about this situation!
  • The zoo states that the lions can show naturals behaviours in the inclousre they are kept in. 1lion alone could not run 4 paces without hitting a wall of glass. I wouldn't keep one of my horses in an enclosure that size let alone a lion, it is disgraceful. With the amount of money Bristol zoo make in one year alone they should spend more on bigger enclosures... rather than parking. The car park is bigger than a lion enclosure. Which Bristol zoo believe is fit for 2 Adult MALES. Bewildering
