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

  • I feel its cruel to cage any animal or bird but if you must then at least make sure its in a large space as possible
  • Personally I have never visited Bristol Zoo because it is TINY! If we must as species keep members of our extended family in some form of captivity then at least allow them the dignity of having the most natural like habitat akin to their needs. These lions should at the very least go to Longleat where they have much more space to simply be lions . . keeping animals in cages and small enclosures is an abomination!
  • It's been some years since I last went to Bristol Zoo, and I don't entirely remember the lion enclosure. I'm hoping to visit again someday soon, it would make me very sad to see lions in such small enclosures. I'd rather not see them at all. We don't visit Newquay Zoo because it's enclosures are also too small.
