Today is Power of Youth day, and we’re shining a light on the amazing contribution young volunteers make here at the zoo and in their local communities.

It’s Volunteers’ Week, and we want to say a huge THANK YOU to the amazing team of community volunteers working across our Nature Recovery Corridor project!

We want to empower young people to make good choices and advocate for the planet.

We hope to inspire more people to take up a career in conservation with our brand new apprenticeship scheme!

The new strategy includes a range of measures to teach children about the importance of conserving and protecting our planet.

Find out more about our eastern black rhinos, southern cassowaries, Andean bears  and Komodo dragons. 

Our Early Years and Foundation Studies (EYFS) programme is a young programme, just like its target audience of 0 to 5 year olds. Our Conservation Tots events have multiple benefits to children, their caregivers and the planet!

We’re facing ever increasing global temperatures, extreme weather and an untold number of species are under threat of extinction due to a changing climate. If not affected directly, young people are still exposed to the huge topic of climate change daily, and they need the knowledge and aspirations to be able to tackle it.

This International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating all the fantastic women who help us to prevent extinction, every single day!

The natural world is changing at an extremely fast pace, with biodiversity loss, climate change and global pandemics. Science education has never been more important. Inspiring, engaging and enabling young people to take action for conservation is key to a brighter future.
