Zoological directorate research opportunities
ZSL London and Whipsnade Zoos present a unique opportunity to study species and aspects of their biology that are difficult or impossible to study in their natural habitat. Find out about the types of opportunities available and how to apply. Please note that these are not run in conjunction with IoZ, but within ZSL's Zoological directorate.
Find out more on the Zoological Directorate Research page.
We at IoZ carry out a wide range of research projects, a selection of which are detailed below.
