Join our conspiracy of lemurs for feeding time, on their own private island at the zoo!

Get VIP access to Lemur Island, home to our ring-tailed lemurs and usually off limits to visitors!

Give our lemurs their lunch, before watching them climb high into the trees of their incredible forest habitat.

Take the opportunity to quiz our keepers about the lemurs, and our conservation work to protect this incredible species in the wild.

This experience will be one to remember, and you’ll have a lasting effect on wildlife because all the money raised through our experiences goes to support our wide range of conservation work around the world.
