Bristol Wild Place Project aims to boosts conservation

A wildlife park with animals from Madagascar, east Africa and the Congo has opened on the outskirts of Bristol.

The Wild Place Project is the first stage in the creation of a much bigger wildlife conservation park.

It is part of the Bristol, Clifton and West of England Zoological Society, which also includes the city's zoo.

Visitors will see much larger animals than those which can be housed at the small city zoo.

When the park is finished it will also be home to Sumatran tigers, brown bears and wolves.
