Zoos Allowed To Reopen - 100,000 Signatures in a Day!



Zoos in England are to be allowed to reopen their doors to visitors from 15 June 2020.. Also permitted to reopen will be outdoor attractions where people stay in their cars, such as safari parks or drive-in cinemas, and takeaway food services.

But some things will have to remain closed like aquariums, reptile houses, other indoor exhibitions, cafes, and gift shops.

The news was embargoed until 22:30 Tuesday 9 June, reported The Independent

Earlier in the evening, a petition that had just 111 signatures at 10am on the morning of 9 June, was on course to get 100,000 signatures by 10:30pm. At 100,000 signatures Parliament would have had to consider debating it.

The 100,000 signatures were actually reached just after 11pm, with over 1,000 signatures coming from South West Bedfordshire, Andrew Selous' constituency where ZSL Whipsnade Zoo is situated.
