Welcome to The Isle of Wight Zoo

From pocket sized primates to powerful predators, the residents of The Isle of Wight Zoo, will charm and amaze you. The Zoo is based on Sandown Beach on the east coast of the Island. Originally family-owned it recently became a registered Charity - The Wildheart Trust, which is dedicated to realising its global ambitions to make a meaningful impact on the health of the natural world while actively improving the well-being of animals in human care.

The Trust aims to promote the survival of endangered species through first class educational and recreational experiences, exemplary animal management, conservation and research. The Zoo is well known as a centre for rescued big cats, all have come to their forever homes at the Zoo at different stages of their lives and from a variety of backgrounds.
