Zoo Club

Each month, from September to November and from January to June, the Zoo Clubs give children aged six to 17 the chance to meet some of the world's most endangered animals. 

They teach children about conservation and show them the best ways to protect wildlife at home and abroad.

Members also have the chance to meet our animals and zookeepers and find out interesting facts about our most endangered species.
