Animal-keeper talks

Our usual schedule of animal-keeper talks is currently suspended, in order to prevent groups of visitors gathering in the same space. We have however installed a number of screens throughout the zoo playing pre-recorded talks.

As a charity committed to conservation, we want each and every one of our visitors to get the most out of their visit! That’s why we schedule animal-keeper talks, giving our visitors opportunity to quiz and question our dedicated staff.

Please note that the daily animal-keeper talk schedule is liable to change – we want to make sure the zoo stays exciting for both our visitors and our animals! An updated schedule of animal-keeper talks is displayed at the main entrance desk each day.

  • 12:00 - Lemur lunch
