International Vulture Awareness Weekend
7 - 8 Sep 2013 – All Day
Join us for a weekend of fun with ZSL Whipsande Zoo's birds of the world whilst raising vital funds for vulture conservation projects.
Join us for International Vulture Awareness Weekend and help raise vital funds for vulture conservation and research projects.
ZSL Whipsnade Zoos Flying Bird Team have got an array of exciting demonstrations planned with our birds of the world , along with the chance to get close up to our feathered friends in some very special meet and greet sessions throughout the day.
We'll have a fun scavenger hunt for you to take part in, see if you can find all the answers to our vulture quiz and collect some special items as you explore the Zoo. There'll also be vulture themed arts and crafts, 'Boris the Sulky Vulture' story time, competitions to win flying experiences and encounters and much, much more.
All donations raised through this event are put directly into ZSL's work with vulture conservation projects in India and Nepal. Don't forget to visit our conservation stand at the event to learn more about the vital work your donations will go towards, helping ZSL to protect this threatened species.
Please note: There are no vultures at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. You can visit vultures at our sister zoo ZSL London Zoo .
