Be at the heart of all areas of ZSL and join as a Patron Fellow. Our Patron Fellowship is designed to allow you to enjoy the best of both Patronage and Fellowship at a discounted amount, whilst you help to protect the planet's most threatened species across the world, contribute to conservation and discover our ground-breaking scientific research as it emerges from the field.

Firstly, choose the level of Patronage at which you wish to join and then you can add Fellowship* at no extra cost! You will enjoy all the benefits of Patronage and all the following non-Zoo access benefits of Fellowship (this is because you will receive enhanced Zoo access benefits as part of your Patronage):

  • Governance responsibilities including the right to stand for, and electing ZSL's Council Members (Trustees).
  • Receive ZSL's publications including the Fellow exclusive publication, The Zoologist, and Wild About magazine.
  • Discounts on Wiley books at 35% and subscriptions to Animal Conservation at 60%.
  • Discounted ticketing for science ticketed lectures and symposia, including our keynote lecture of the year, the Stamford Raffles Lecture.
  • Exclusive invitations to Fellow and Speaker receptions before ZSL's monthly scientific lectures and other speciailist events at our Zoos and with our scientists, conservationists and keepers.
  • Borrowing rights in the extensive ZSL Library at Regent's Park, the largest zoological collection in the country and a great place to study and research.

Please feel free to contact us on 020 7449 6406 or email if you have any questions.
