What better year to visit than 2014! In celebration of the opening of Colchester Zoo's latest new enclosure 'Bears of the Rising Sun', a number of special events will be taking place during
the Year of the Bear.
There will be opportunities to find out more about bears in
the wild, as well as to see the bears in their wonderful new
environment. A programme for schools will enable children to get
involved in a competition, with the winning school designing a
permanent piece of artwork at Colchester Zoo.
Fundraising will also be taking place to assist the charity Free the
Bears in their work to assist and protect, preserve and enrich
the lives of bears throughout the world.
