Our programme of monthly talks gives MEMBERS an EXCLUSIVE opportunity to hear from our animal and plant teams. Get the latest news from our collection, discover more about our incredible science and education work and hear stories from our field partners.

Our animal & plant logistical services team source, grow and deliver everything the diverse species which live here need on a daily basis. Why do we source the products we do? What are the challenges of trying to match the species’ natural diets? How are we planting our future food?

Chris, our animal & plant logistical services manager, will discuss everything from fruit for the primates to the meat for the carnivores as well as everything else in between. The talk will give you an insight as to how we source and store the feed for over 21,000 animals across the zoo site.

Booking is essential and are sold on a first come, first served basis.
