More details from petition creator
Noahâs Ark Zoo Farm (NAZF) is a zoo just outside Bristol that markets itself to schools and is heavily focused on child education.
However, instead of teaching well-established science, it promotes creationism.
The literature displayed at the zoo is hostile to Darwin and his theories and attempts to debunk techniques such as radio carbon dating and interpretation of the fossil record.
Much of this literature - which is presented as fact - contradicts science on the national curriculum, thereby actively damaging a childâs education. This can be evidenced on their website; however, this is much diluted compared the ardent creationist material on display at the zoo.
