– Switch old lights to energy efficient LED lights
– Reduce usage by introducing energy efficient alternatives when making replacements
– Evaluate green energy alternatives – currently investigating hydroelectric power due to the amount of natural water running through the park
– Use environmentally friendly products wherever possible for building enclosures i.e. wood from sustainable sources with FSC logo and recycled material such as the ECO sheets which are made using recycled plastic
– Ensure new buildings are fully insulated


– Reduce the amount of water used on the park for hosing pathways and cleaning
– Trace and repair any water leaks
– Investigate recycling water and using rainwater
– Use tank filled with filtered stream water whenever possible for cleaning park, refilling toilets and the sea lion pools
– Look into inserting ‘hippo bags’ into the toilet cisterns to reduce water use
– Evaluate the filtration in the sea lion pool with a view to updating it to improve its effectiveness

– Plant native trees and plants that can also be used as browse for different species on the park
– Encourage indigenous wildlife and educate the public on our native species and bio diversity
– No herbicides or insecticides are to be used on the park
– Explore using environmentally sensitive products wherever possible


– Energy saving tips to be incorporated into the Employee induction handbook
– Encourage park visitors to be environmentally friendly through signage and messages incorporated into relevant animal talks
– If green energy such as hydroelectric power is found suitable for the park, the waterwheels and system are to be used as educational tools
