Careers and courses
Learn more about conservation and the animal kingdom, plus find out about careers with animals.
Zoo Academy (15-17 year olds)
ZSL London Zoo and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo are pleased to announce the return of our exciting animal based courses designed for 15-17 year olds who wish to become vets, vet nurses, zoo keepers or complete other animal related studies.
Junior Zoo Academy
With the success of Zoo Academy for older students, ZSL London & Whipsnade Zoo are excited to launch Junior Zoo Academy.
Aimed at children aged 8-10, this is a great programme for those who are interested in animals and want to learn more in the zoo!
Every year we offer a number of placements at ZSL London Zoo for young people who genuinely intend to pursue an animal or conservation-related career.
