Meet our animals

Meet our animals

We have a whopping 20,000 animals at the zoo from 500 different species, including some of the most exotic and endangered in the world.

We're a registered charity and one of the world's leading centres for conservation, working in the UK and around the world to help protect animals and plants from extinction.

We're devoted to caring for own animals too. Every effort goes into ensuring the highest standards of wellbeing and the best care is given to all our animals, from the tiny snails to the tall giraffes!

As we learn more, we can do more to Act for Wildlife and protect threatened species around the world. It’s incredibly important work. And not just because animals are lovely, but because what happens to wildlife affects everyone on Earth.
