London Zoo is a unique conservation Zoo in the heart of one of the world’s most vibrant capital cities. 

We’re part of ZSL, a science-driven wildlife conservation charity, working to restore wildlife in the UK and around the world.​

We bring people closer to nature and use our expertise to protect wildlife today, while inspiring a lifelong love of animals in the conservationists of tomorrow. ​

Home to many endangered species, the Zoo is a unique centre of conservation excellence, deepening our understanding of animals and supporting new and innovative ways to restore wildlife.​
