Welcome to Rodbaston Animal Zone
The Animal Zone is both a centre for delivering industry standard practical Animal Care teaching and a small, licensed zoo collection which is open to the public during weekends, half-terms and school holidays.
The Animal Zone, based at Rodbaston College is home to around 600 animals from over 140 different species from meerkats to monkeys, rabbits to alpacas!
We believe that conservation starts with good education and aim to inspire and engage our guests and learners, encouraging the next generation of young people to care for our natural world.
Our flat, accessible site, with a regular daily programme of keeper talks, animal encounters, craft sessions, tea rooms and a small gift shop, makes the Animal Zone a fun day out for the whole family.
We have exciting activities and events going on through the year, so remember to check back regularly, to see what’s coming up at the Animal Zone.
