Welcome to Reaseheath Animal Management Centre and Zoo
Welcome to Reaseheath’s Mini Zoo. Situated in the grounds of the Main Campus at Reaseheath College, we benefit from scenic views of the lovely Cheshire countryside.
Animal Management as a subject has been delivered here since 1995, but it wasn’t until 2000 that the department turned into a Zoological Collection.
We were the first College in the County to receive a Zoo License, meaning we could hold specific species, then many years later we were able to open our doors during the holidays so that everyone can benefit from the collection that our students are lucky enough to work with every day. The Zoo is a member of BIAZA (British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums) who are a professional body that represent the UK’s best zoos and aquariums providing a high standard of welfare, education and conservation of animals.
Although we don’t hold many of the species typically found in zoos like giraffes or lions; for these would be too big and dangerous for our students work with – the animals we do house can be viewed closely. As our collection is small our visitors tell us they receive a more personal experience from their visit.
Our students are so busy with their studies that the Zoo opens to the public only during school holidays and selected weekend events. Make sure you find out when we’re open by checking out the “Plan Your Visit” section!
