Text of Petition
As a result of lost income due to emergency closures due to Covid-19 zoos and aquariums including the Welsh Mountain Zoo in Colwyn Bay are facing a funding crisis. The Senedd has decided not to provide emergency funding to support them. This threatens the conservation work, educational opportunities and tourism income into the area. We ask the Senedd to reconsider their decision and provide this vital support.
