ZSL: breaking down barriers
When ZSL London Zoo first opened in the 1820s, most Britons didn’t know what a giraffe looked like. Today, people are not only familiar with such animals, they want to interact with them and protect them.
Conservation is increasingly about finding ways in which mankind can successfully share space with wildlife around the world.
At ZSL we champion that change and reflect it. All our new exhibits are based upon the relationship between people and wildlife, encouraging visitors to get to know the animals as never before.
And chief among those visitors are the children; tomorrow’s conservationists and scientists who we need to arm today with the enthusiasm to take our understanding of wildlife on to greater and greater heights.
