Help restore the Whipsnade White Lion

Can you help restore our famous chalk White Lion to its former glory? The much loved and iconic local landmark is in great need of some serious maintenance and we are hoping our local community will come and lend a hand!

We are looking for a large team of people, who live in the surrounding area, and who can come up to the Zoo regularly and get stuck in on our lion-sized maintenance task! You will need to be physically fit and happy to be outside on very steep and exposed site. The lion is huge, so it won’t be a quick fix, but we’re hoping with regularly attention we can reclaim it from the weeds that have overtaken it in recent years.

We have been overwhelmed with offers of help to restore the Whipsnade White Lion – thank you so much to everyone who has been in touch. We have paused registration for this while we get back to everyone who has expressed interest. If we need additional help, we’ll reopen the form.
