London Zoo Membership & Whipsnade Zoo Membership
Give a Gift Membership to London Zoo!
Its vision is a world where wildlife thrives and to tackle the challenges wild animals face, and help people achieve positive change,
Memberships help contribute towards achieving these goals, partly by supporting them, and partly by giving members the opportunity to get involved and feel a connection to wildlife, whether they are visiting London Zoo or Whipsnade Zoo, and giving people the chance to see the animals for real and even have an animal experience. If we feel a connection to wildlife, we are more likely to want to care for it, to protect and conserve it.

Give a gift from the online shop
There are 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 the zoos! There are gifts for all the family, with soft toys, books, greeting cards, jewellery, clothing and accessories and more! Why not give the zoos 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.
