Members, please fill in your name, membership number, email address and contact number on this form. Pass the form onto your friend to hand in when they take out a membership. We’ll then send you your £7 voucher.

On your bike!

As part of Bristol Zoo’s vision ‘a sustainable future for wildlife and people’, we would like to reward our guests for cycling to the Zoo.

If you are a member of the zoo, collect a cycling stamp card when you next visit and present proof of cycling (e.g. a helmet) to receive one stamp. Collect five stamps and receive a £5 discount off your next membership renewal! Members can pick up a card at the admissions desk. Good for the environment and good for you!
