GO ON A WILD ADVENTURE AT LONDON ZOO
If you're looking for an adventurous start to the New Year, then a trip to London Zoo is the answer.
There is something for everyone to enjoy, with over 600 species of amazing animals from the largest elephant to the smallest leaf-cutter ant, London Zoo is a fascinating place to visit.
Web of Life is the great new exhibit at London Zoo exploring and explaining biodiversity - the astonishing variety of life on Earth. Opened last year by Her Majesty the Queen, The Millennium Conservation Centre housing Web of Life uses a combination of 65 live animal exhibits, interactive displays and on show breeding facilities to highlight the threats faced by wildlife today and how we can all be actively involved in its conservation.
The Ambika Paul Children's Zoo is a great favourite with younger visitors - the Touch Paddock allows kids to get up close and hands-on with farmyard favourites including sheep, hens and goats.
Take in 'Animals in Action' - thirty minutes of fast, flying, leaping action with animals showing off their amazing natural skills.
For something a little bit spooky, check out one of London Zoo's newest arrivals, the aye-aye, unusual looking nocturnal primates with large staring eyes, huge incisor teeth and an ET-like elongated third finger in the Madagascar Centre, at Moonlight World.
So have a fun-filled, informative day at London Zoo and see what we are doing to help conserve some of the world's rarest and most amazing animals.
