ZSL London Zoo Education Courses

Junior Zoo Academy ZSL Whipsnade Zoo

As a result of Government advice in response to COVID-19, we are postponing experiences that were due to take place up until the end of July 2020. All visitors affected by this will receive an email to confirm next steps.

Any bookings for experiences after this date will be reviewed as we continue to act on official advice. Thank you for your understanding.


At ZSL London Zoo, we offer a range of unique courses where young people have the chance to experience day-to-day life at the Zoo and find out more about different animal careers.

Our courses are made up of a variety of tasks and activities appropriate to each age range that give a realistic impression of Zoo work. 

Ranging from 2-5 days, these courses offer a fantastic opportunity for hands-on experience. Students will go away with a clearer idea of what working at the Zoo involves and which career they may wish to pursue.
