ZSL at New Scientist Live

ZSL conservationists, keepers and scientists are taking part in this year’s New Scientist Live at the ExCeL Centre, London.

The four-day exhibition will be jam-packed with thought-provoking talks, interactive experiences, workshops and performances set to inspire all ages.  

ZSL’s experts will be talking on the Earth Stage revealing ‘London’s biggest hidden wildlife secret’ and the Performance Stage, discussing science-based animal training and how it benefits veterinary care in zoos.

There’s also the opportunity to meet our experts, on the BIAZA stand in the Earth Zone, each day…

Thursday will see our #MotherThames campaign come to the ExCeL. Find out more about the campaign, the many different species that call the Thames home, and ways that you can get involved through volunteering.

On Friday, we’ll be focusing on our animal husbandry and training. To find out more, watch our Asiatic lions in action as ZSL's Jim Mackie explains the importance of environmental enrichment and read about Jim’s job as ZSL’s training and behaviour expert.

Saturday features researchers from our Institute of Zoology discussing the importance of citizen science and how you can help wildlife on your doorstep. Visit the Garden Wildlife Health website to discover more.

Finally, on Sunday, we’ll be showcasing how technology is helping us to conserve wildlife across the world. We’ll also be discussing our current conservation campaign, raising funds to protect wildlife by supporting communities in Nepal and Kenya.
