There are always lots of exciting events at the zoo including the free daily animal talks that our experts do every day.
We have an amazing array of science and conservation experts discussing their specialist subjects this summer, all at The Botanist’s Lab. Ranging from palm oil Q&As, to magnificent meadows, the science of animal breeding and camera traps & biodiversity surveys, plus loads more! All part of Wild Worlds - a festival for everyone!
We are delighted to be working with the IUCN Conservation Planning Specialist Group (CPSG) to deliver this exciting training opportunity.
Lots of species are losing their rainforest habitats to grow palm oil, which is used in 50% of our supermarket products. Come and take part in our zoo wide Sustainable Swap to find out what you can do to help orangutans!
