Zoo2U have submitted updated plans to try and gain planning permission for a new zoo that has already been refused TWICE by Cheshire East Council. You can read more about their plans to expand the mobile zoo business and lock more animals in cages HERE! The last time we took collective action to object to this proposal, we won! So now, we need your help to achieve victory again, by ensuring these exploitative plans cannot go ahead.    We are now calling on our wonderful supporters to send their objections for application 24/1108C to Cheshire East Council by using their online fo ..read more

The battle against a new zoo in Cheshire continues
Freedom for Animals Blog
by
4d ago
Back in March 2023 we brought you the great news that a mobile zoo named Zoo2U in Cheshire, had their planning permission to build a new zoo denied!  But the fight is not over - as this zoo has resubmitted plans to Cheshire East council, in the hopes they can now get the plans approved.  Zoo2U are wanting to expand their mobile zoo business (which was initially run from their private house) on land owned by Bidlea Dairy Farm. They have already flouted the legal planning process by building many of the new enclosures already, even over-confidently purchasing more animals as part of th ..read more

Another bull elephant has been shipped over to Noah’s Ark Zoo in Bristol from a zoo in Germany.  The thirteen year old male, called Uli, has joined three other male elephants already held captive at the zoo; Shaka, Janu, and nine year old Sutton. Sutton is an individual who we have shared the story of previously, as he was recently separated from his mother, Five, who lives at West Midlands Safari Park.  This devastating separation left Five completely alone, and broke a special bond between the mother and son that would have caused deep trauma to the pair. Trauma that they will feel ..read more

30th March 2024  Guest blog by an ex-zookeeper. Their identity is not disclosed to protect anonymity.  My Love For Animals For as long as I can remember I’ve had a fascination with wildlife, with a specific love for monkeys and apes.  It should come as no surprise that myself and many other people are in awe of our fellow primate cousins. Because after all, they are our family.  We are descended from common ancestors, and therefore share a considerable amount of our DNA with other primates, especially with our ape cousins. Around 98% of our DNA is shared with the likes of c ..read more

Oppose Live Hatching Projects!

2w ago
Freedom for Animals is urging its supporters and the public to actively oppose and report live hatching projects being planned in schools and communities. Join us to demand that hatching projects should no longer be promoted as a teaching method. Live hatching projects are becoming increasingly popular in UK classrooms. Fertilised eggs are taken from mothers to be incubated and hatched in classrooms and sold as an ‘educational’ experience. However, the reality is that their educational value is minimal and the exploitation of chicks used for these projects is inexcusable and not justifiable ..read more

22nd March 2024 Every year Freedom for Animals holds a weekend of action to highlight the suffering that thousands of animals face in captivity in UK zoos, aquariums, and mobile zoos.  Animals suffer terribly for human entertainment. They are kept in small cages, bred and sold as commodities, separated from their families, and killed when there are too many. But when we come together and spread awareness of this misery, we can bring it to an end. This year’s Zoo Awareness Weekend falls on March 29th-1st April and, with your help, we can spread the truth and shine a light on the miserable ..read more
