Our brand new gibbon exhibit opens at ZSL London Zoo on 27th May!
Did you know that every single species of gibbon is threatened with extinction? ZSL is working to protect the Hainan gibbon - the world's rarest primate. Through using new monitoring technologies and mitigating conflicts with local communities, we're helping to develop a more secure future for this Critically Endangered primate.
Come and find out more about gibbons at ZSL London Zoo's new treehouse-style exhibit this May half term.
A summer of Soapbox Science launches this Saturday in London! The events champion the vital role of women in science and provide an exciting opportunity to meet, engage and be inspired.
ZSL’s Jenny Jaffe will be joining 11 other speakers, discussing her work as a wildlife Veterinarian working to reintroduce dormice into the wild. Visit her on the South Bank from 2pm on Saturday to find out all about her work.
An endangered spiny hill turtle has hatched at ZSL London Zoo for the first time!
The species originates from Asia, where it’s estimated that more than ten million turtles are being traded for food, traditional medicine and the pet trade each year. The husbandry research being carried out by ZSL is becoming increasingly important in guaranteeing the existence of these animals for the future. #WorldTurtleDay
Did you know that cheetahs are Africa's rarest big cat? Only an estimated 7,000 individuals are thought to survive in the wild, but they cover a vast area so monitoring populations is challenging and time consuming.
Could the answer to finding cheetahs lie with another animal? ZSL's Dr. Sarah Durant explains how conservationists are using dogs to find cats.
It's Endangered Species Day and we're LIVE at ZSL London Zoo with our Asiatic lions! Tune in to find out how ZSL is protecting the last remaining wild population of Asiatic lions #EndangeredSpeciesDay
Did you know that the pygmy three-toed sloth is the smallest and slowest in the world? It was recognised as a distinct species in 2001 and solely lives on the tiny Escudo Island, separated from mainland Panama.
With only around 100 pygmy sloths thought to be left in the wild, the species is critically endangered and monitoring is crucial to its survival.
A team of conservationists from ZSL EDGE of Existence are using new tagging technology to learn more about the sloths’ movement and behaviour to identify priority areas for conservation.
Once widespread throughout the Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea, the unusual Angelshark has suffered severe declines over the past century, largely due to commercial fishing practices.
But in the last stronghold for this shark, the waters around the Canary Islands, a new study has been conducted to help understand more about the species.
This detailed information is vital to help conservationists like those in the Angel Shark Project work to try and save one of the world’s most threatened shark species from extinction.
The Angel Shark Project is a collaboration between ZSL, the Zoological Research Museum Alexander Koenig and the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
The Tidal Thames is an important estuarine ecosystem, vital for a number of fish species, including many of commercial and ecological significance.
In collaboration with partners, ZSL Marine and Freshwater Conservation is working to understand more about how and where juvenile fish use the Tidal Thames estuary. We're looking for volunteer citizen scientists to support our conservation work, could you help us?
Amur tigers are endangered, under threat from poaching, car collisions and the spread of disease. When tiger mothers die, they suffer an additional tragedy: their cubs become orphans, and in most cases, are doomed to die too unless they receive help.
ZSL is working with other specialists in Russia to rescue and rehabilitate Amur tigers. ZSL’s Dr. Mikhail Goncharuk shares the story of two orphaned cubs, Lazovka and Pozhar, who together are learning the skills that will ensure their future survival in the wild.
