It was meant to be a sunny day and, as we weren’t staying far from Belfast Zoo, we decided a day at the Zoo would be a great idea. Unfortunately the weather didn’t listen to the forecast but fortunately Zoo’s can still be enjoyed in the rain!
Menorca zoo is not like other zoos. It was set up as a family business to be a sanctuary for animals in need. The zoo takes in abandoned animals, pets that families get rid of, animals which have been used for testing, animals from rescue centers across Europe and animals rescued from illegal trafficking or mistreatment in circuses. The zoo aims to give these animals a second chance of life.
We went for a walk and bumped into some emu’s! We offered them some food but I don’t think they were too hungry so we posed for pictures with them instead and left them to it.
