Fresh idea helps zoo during the half-term break
CHILDREN on half-term break are being offered discounted entry to Bristol Zoo Gardens - as long as they bring food to feed the animals.
Bringing apples, carrots, pears, broccoli and lettuce can secure a ticket for £5 from now until Sunday, as part of the Zoo's Five-a-Day February.
All of the fresh produce taken to the zoo by members of the public will be collected by keepers and used to feed the animals as part of their daily balanced diet.
Keepers will also be giving a series of special talks about the animals and their healthy diets, during half term week.

John Partridge, senior curator of animals at Bristol Zoo, said: "Ensuring our animals receive a full and nutritionally-balanced diet is very important in order to make sure they always look and feel their best."
He added: "Many of our animals eat a huge amount. For example, Jock, our silverback gorilla, eats over 7,000g of fresh fruit, vegetables and pellet every day.
"While we won't be relying on the public's food donations to feed our animals, as a charity, it will help contribute towards the cost of feeding our animals for the week."
