A Wraxall zoo is making the most of unwanted Christmas trees by feeding them to its animals.
Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm, in Clevedon Road, reuses leftover Christmas trees which, rather than being thrown away, are given to the animals for enrichment.
This is a fun way of recycling, while giving the animals endless hours of entertainment.
One species which has a particular fondness for Christmas trees is the zoo’s African elephants.
The mammals have been given an early Christmas present, as their indoor enclosure has been turned into an elephant Christmas tree forest.

The trees are planted and strung up each day for the elephants to eat, play with and destroy as they see fit.
Noah’s Ark is running a variety of festive activities over the Christmas holidays. For more information, visit www.noahsarkzoofarm.co.uk
