Vets in Action

Vets in Action is back at ZSL London Zoo! Budding young vets can put their animal care skills to the test and experience first-hand what it takes to be a vet at the Zoo.

This February half-term, from Saturday 15 February to Sunday 23 February, kids will be placed in the heart of the action in our fun role-playing vet experience. After reporting for duty at the specially created Animal hospital reception, junior vets will pop on their white coats and join the team in the Zoo’s hands-on vet clinics.

Children will help examine, x-ray and carry out treatments on toys, from microchipping meerkats to removing plastic from the tummy of a sea turtle – experiencing first-hand the huge variety of work carried out by the Zoo’s vets, vet nurses and zookeepers.

After the stethoscopes come off, a packed schedule of demonstrations and activities throughout the week will take families further inside the exciting world of the Zoo: explaining everything the ZSL team does to keep its 18,000 residents in tip-top condition.

A great value day out, Vets in Action and all extra activities are included in the entry price and there's no need to book in advance.

All activities will take place from 11.00am – 1.00pm & 2.00pm – 4.30pm and are recommended for primary school aged children. 

  • Exclusive opening Saturday 15 February 2020 from 10.00am - 11.00am for our Gold Members. (Slots must be reserved in advance).
