The animals in the zoo were generally well looked after with clean, adequate housing and objects to stimulate. However, there was a lack of supervision from staff... teenagers were chasing young goats in the petting area and at one point children were throwing stones into an enclosure. Signs for silence were universally ignored and people were throwing food and other objects into the monkeys. The gorilla enclosure was new and fairly impressive and there was a range of animals and birds. A baby dolphin was screened from the public but the dolphin pool was far too small as was the penguin pool. We have visited Loro Park in Tenerife where standards were much, much higher with much more emphasis put on animal welfare. Also some attractions (one being the walk through Lemur enclosure) were shut. All in all it was like turning the clock back 40 years or so in a UK zoo.
