The Zoological Society of London (ZSL) is a charity devoted to the worldwide conservation of animals and their habitats. The scientists in the laboratory and the field, animal management teams at both zoos and the veterinarians contribute wide-ranging skills and experience to both practical conservation and to the scientific research that underpins this work. London Zoo is home to more than 600 animal species, many of which are endangered - your entry fee contributes to thier conservation projects across the globe.
There are plenty of cafés and picnic spots, and the zoo offers educational and craft activities as well as an ongoing programme of exhibitions and events exploring science and conservation.
