Paignton Zoo

As Paignton Zoo is near where I live, I go to see the animals on a regular basis.

I cannot stress enough how much trouble they go to with regard to breeding and protecting species. Paignton are part of a European breeding programme which takes captive animals and selectively breed from them to help avoid extinction. Whilst I’m no photographer, I have managed to capture some really nice pictures during my last few visits.

The western lowland gorillas have been particularly photogenic.

500 pounds of real power!

I’m planning a trip to other zoos during the next year so check back and see what I’ve been up to!
