Some of the Discovery Centre exhibits are currently closed, as we go through the process of relocating and expanding those exhibits elsewhere. Phase one of this process was the opening of the new Butterfly House, with more exciting developments to follow.
We thank you for your patience during this transitional phase and apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Discover invertebrates abound, from the locusts, tarantulas, Geoffroy's marmosets, mata mata turtle, yellow foot tortoises, iguanas and saki monkeys.

Did you know ZSL’s main project in Nepal is the conservation of the greater one-horned rhino?
Numbers of this critically-endangered rhino in Chitwan National Park have increased from a low of 100 in the late 1960's to at least 645 in 2015, thanks to the work of conservation organisation, including ZSL.
