Animals and zoos


There are regulations on keeping zoo animals and most zoos will need to apply for a license.

Contact the Licensing Team if you are thinking of setting up a zoo.

We can advise you on whether you will need a license.

You could get a fine of up to £2,500 if you run a zoo without a licence or do not follow the conditions of your licence.
