A day at Drusillas Park

Last weekend the boyfriend and I visited Drusillas Park, a small zoo in East Sussex. It was a beautiful sunny day and although the zoo is really more for families (there’s loads of interactive stuff and huge playground) we had a great time looking around. I’m never really sure how I feel about zoos, seeing wild animals in cages just doesn’t seem right, but I know how hard many zoos work to contribute to conservation and protect endangered species. So, while I remain unconvinced it was still a chance to have a practise with my camera. I love taking photos of animals, particularly close ups, as you can probably guess!


  1. I feel the exact same way towards zoo's and aquariums etc. It's a shame their not in their natural habitat but then again there are breeding programmes and the like.
    Gorgeous photos anyways. The otter seems very chilled out for an otter! haha

  2. I love the photo of the meerkat with the little girl and her camera in the background! I know Drusillas very well- it's only a hop, skip and jump from our house. I also know someone that volunteers there and have been assured they do everything they can to ensure the animals are as happy as they can be in captivity. x

  3. I have the same battles with Zoos, I love them but then I can't help but feel sad for these aniamls because they aren't in the wild. But then like you say so many Zoos do good work for animals in the wild etc.
    I just hope that they are looked after, which most of them are and its clear to see that the people who work at some Zoos adore/love these animals.
