More about ZSL

The Zoological Society of London (ZSL) was founded in 1826.  It is an international scientific, conservation and educational charity and its vision is "a world where animals are valued, and their conservation assured"  Its mission is to promote and achieve the worldwide conservation of animals and their habitats.  It does this through its groundbreaking science, involvement in conservation projects in more than 50 countries and also its zoos - ZSL London Zoo and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.

London Zoo is based in Regent's Park in London.  There are komodo dragons, the newly opened Tiger Territory, Penguin Beach, the Reptile House, Gorilla Kingdom, Rainforest Life , Galapagos tortoises, Buttefly Paradise, meerkats, squirrel monkeys, otters and reindeers.  There are also lions & tigers - birds, and an aquarium.

Whipsnade Zoo is set in 600 acres of beautiful parkland in the Chiltern Hills, just north of London, in Bedfordshire.  It is home to 2,500 animals & 200 species, many of whom are endangered species.  Tigers, rhinos, giraffes, lynx, bears, wolves, cheetahs, lemurs, lions, sealions, hippos, red pandas, penguins, a children's farm, otters, pgymy marmosets, pythons and boas, chimps and elephants are just some of the animals you can see. 

You could adopt an animal for a gift

Give a gift from ZSL's online shop 

ZSL has lots of gorgeous gifts for everyone in the family, plus of course animal adoptions such as adopting a sloth.  It's a great way to support ZSL!  There are gifts for all the family, with soft toys, books, greeting cards, jewellery, clothing and accessories and more! Why not give ZSL an extra gift for all their work to help conservation and look after the animals in their care, by giving them a donation as well?  The animals would be very grateful.
