The first guide to the zoos, safari parks, aquariums and other wildlife attractions of Britain in 17 years and the first to attempt to describe every collection in 30 years. As ever the author regards zoological integrity as the most important factor with the result that this is probably the only book ever to offer a true critique of the UK zoo scene at a given point in time (2009).
Founded in 1995 the Independent Zoo Enthusiasts Society is a group of like-minded supporters of the world's best zoos and aquariums. We believe that zoos are interesting in themselves, not just as conservational vessels (however important that function may be). Therefore, we take an interest in animal husbandry techniques, zoo history, zoos around the world, zoo ephemera and, indeed any aspect of wild animals in human care. This is probably best reflected in our quarterly magazine Zoo Grapevine and International Zoo News and in our published books.
