NORTHUMBERLAND College’s Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens have been granted provisional membership of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquaria.

The membership will enable it to keep more varied and exotic species.

Animal centre resource manager Stevem Sykes said: “The membership shows the public how committed we are to caring for animals and training students to the highest standards and industry practices.”
