A Wraxall zoo has picked up a hat-trick of British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) awards.

Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm, in Clevedon Road, won three bronze prizes as the top zoos and aquariums in the country were recognised for their work.

The zoo picked up its first award for its recent giant tortoise terrain build, an enclosure which was specially designed to house seven Aldabra tortoises.

A prize was given for its upgraded website which has enabled people to navigate their options more easily for a visit.

The zoo was also commended for its work with Explorers Escape on the last descent education programme.

The programme saw the zoo’s education team work closely with a number of schools across North Somerset to teach youngsters about the damming of the River Nile and the effects this would have on both wildlife and human populations.

Staff at the zoo are delighted with the awards.
