Completed petition Ask the Senedd to reconsider their decision not to support Zoos & Aquariums with emergency funding.

As a result of lost income due to emergency closures due to Covid-19 zoos and aquariums including the Welsh Mountain Zoo in Colwyn Bay are facing a funding crisis. The Senedd has decided not to provide emergency funding to support them. This threatens the conservation work, educational opportunities and tourism income into the area. We ask the Senedd to reconsider their decision and provide this vital support.

The Petitions Committee decided not to refer this petition for a debate

The Committee considered written evidence on the petition and, given that the Welsh Government has indicated the previous and ongoing support to zoos and aquaria and confirmed that this is being kept under review, decided not to refer the petition for a debate.
