Meet The Animals
Go behind the scenes with ZSL’s experts and learn more about the Zoo’s species during the ZSL Meet The Animals experiences. Be quick as ‘meet the waddle of penguins at ZSL London Zoo’ and ‘meet ZSL Whipsnade Zoo’s herd of elephants,’ ZSL animal experiences sold out in a matter of weeks last year.
Keeper For A Day Experience
Make sure 2018 isn’t an ordinary year for the budding zoologist with a gift of the ZSL Junior Keeper For A Day experience. Go behind the scenes and get stuck in with mucking out, food preparation and meeting some incredible animals, guided by an expert resident zookeeper.
Zoo Explorers at ZSL Whipsnade (5-7 Year Olds)
Zoo Explorers is a fantastic, exciting one day course for children aged 5-7 years old who are ready to explore the Zoo and learn more! Supported by the Discovery & Learning team, children will have the opportunity to get up close with a selection of animals as well as make new friends and engage in exciting animal themed activities.
Junior Zoo Academy (8-10 Year Olds)
Junior Zoo Academy is a unique course aimed at children 8-10 years old, who love animals and want to learn more about working in the Zoo. This two-day course includes games, challenges, trails and zookeeper activities. Supported by education staff, students will have the chance to learn about the animals they see and make new friends with like-minded children.
Know someone who fancies themselves as the next wildlife photographer of the year? A place on one of ZSL’s Photography Workshops is the ideal gift for them. Led by prize-winning photographers, the workshops teach participants how to get the most from their cameras and achieve the best shots of amazing animals.
