Balai Directive

The guidance below was written and published by Matt Hartley when he was the policy lead for the Balai Directive for the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. It has now been removed from the Defra website due to government no longer providing guidance documents to the public. It is still completely up to date and relevant and can be used by zoos to assist them in managing Balai in zoos.
