ZSL need help!
ZSL have 20,000 animals in their care and they are working on conservation projects around the world. They urgently need our help whether you visit or not. The UK Government set up a zoo fund for zoos to access but it has been absolutely useless for large zoos like ZSL who cannot access it because of its criteria. You can find out more here - BIAZA (that's the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums) want the government to set up a Zoo Recovery Fund. You can write to your MP about this here
