ZSL London Zoo launches new shop collection with Owen Davey

Created with sustainability at the heart, the range has keepsakes from a visit to the Zoo, from brightly coloured tote bags, magnets, keyrings, tea towels, mugs to prints to celebrate the animal kingdom –  the perfect stocking filler.  

The newest collection features brightly illustrated penguins, flamingos, giraffes and lions, all wildlife ZSL is working to protect around the world and in its two Zoos, ZSL London and Whipsnade Zoos. 

Abbie Taylor, ZSL Buying and Merchandising Manager said; “Knowing the joy a trip to ZSL London Zoo brings to our visitors we wanted to create the perfect mementoes to take home from a day at the Zoo. We’ve used a variety of materials such as recycled cotton, recyclable card and compostable wrapping to craft this beautiful collection for animal fans.  

“Our visitors can purchase this collection, and everything in the ZSL Zoo shop or online shop, with the knowledge that their purchase is supporting ZSL’s vital work towards creating a world where wildlife thrives.” 

Owen Davey, illustrator said; "I'm so pleased to have created this range of artworks for ZSL, not only because I love illustrating animals, but because the sale of the products will help raise funds for their vital conservation work across the world. It's great to work with a charity directly involved in champion and preserve our planet's necessary and wonderful biodiversity. 

"I love to learn about the weird and wonderful lives of animals and as an Illustrator, they are an endless source of inspiration for me. I have created many picture books over the years that are specifically focused on animals, and I have even more animal projects in process.” 

Customers to the ZSL shop can purchase the beautiful new array of products with the knowledge that their purchase is helping wildlife around the world and supporting international conservation charity, ZSL, efforts to create a world where wildlife thrives. 

ZSL’s newest collection is available in store at ZSL London Zoo and online now.
