One of the world’s rarest frogs, bred as part of an international project to save the species from extinction, has been successfully returned to its Caribbean home ahead of the global day to highlight the plight of their species.


The Avon Invasive Weeds Forum (AIWF) has been granted over £13,000 through SITA Trust - following an application submitted by the Bristol Zoological Society - to control invasive weeds within the River Avon, which threaten both plant and animal species.


Earlier on this year, the animal keepers at Africa Alive! put a lot of time and effort into re- furbishing the flamingo’s nest site, to encourage the birds to breed and we are delighted to announce that all their hard work paid off, with the successful rearing of three chicks.
