Living Coasts is the UK's only coastal zoo which is home to a variety of marine species from around the world including seals, penguins, otters, fish and much more.

Through carefully designed enclosures we enable our visitors to see our animals both on land and underwater, making for memorable close up encounters and experiences.

As well as being a popular visitor attraction, Living Coasts is an education, scientific and conservation charity dedicated to protecting our global wildlife heritage and inspiring in people a respect for animals, plants and the environment.

Our vision is: a world rich in wildlife and wild places.

As a good and responsible zoo, we are members of the British, European and World associations of zoos and aquariums and we have won numerous awards for our breeding and conservation work.

Living Coasts is owned by Wild Planet Trust and this umbrella charity also owns Paignton Zoo in Paignton, Newquay Zoo in Cornwall, Primley Park and Clennon Gorge in Paignton, and Slapton Ley National Nature Reserve.
