Welcome to the ZSL Media Centre
ZSL (Zoological Society of London) is an international conservation charity working to create a world where wildlife thrives. From investigating the health threats facing animals to helping people and wildlife live alongside each other, ZSL is committed to bringing wildlife back from the brink of extinction. Our work is realised through our ground-breaking science, our field conservation around the world and engaging millions of people through our two zoos, ZSL London Zoo and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.
The press office is here to help with any media enquiries relating to ZSL, from facilitating filming and photography to putting you in touch with one of our world-leading conservation experts for interviews or comment.
We are always happy to discuss all ideas and make recommendations, so please direct any media queries to a member of the press team – all of our contact details are outlined below.
If you are an agent representing a media personality who would like to support a ZSL campaign, event or project, we'd love to hear from you. Please email the relevant member of the team below, depending on what they would like to work with us on.
For more information on ZSL please download the ZSL press pack here.
ZSL’s iconic Zoos and historic venues have made perfect backdrops for many films, photography shoots and television programmes. Commercial film shoots incur a location fee, and if you are looking to use any of ZSL’s venues or locations, seeking to reproduce a ZSL-owned image or conduct research for a project that is not about the work of ZSL, please email CommercialFilming@zsl.org.
Please note: the ZSL Press Office is unable to assist with general queries. For information on Zoo opening times, booking tickets and experiences, please email email@example.com.
