ZSL London Zoo, Regent's Park

Test your animal care skills this Half Term

Vets in Action running 16th - 24th February 2019

Suitable for 0-16 years

Best Bits

With over 800 amazing animal species to discover, as well as live shows and fantastic, immersive exhibits including Tiger Territory, London Zoo is an unmissable attraction.

This half-term, young animal enthusiasts will be able to experience first-hand the exciting tasks ZSL London Zoo vets undertake on a daily basis with Vets in Action. After arriving at the Zoo’s Animal Hospital, children will be placed in the heart of the action assisting the team with procedures on poorly soft toy animals in our specially-recreated interactive vet centre. They can then put their newly-learnt skills into practice by giving a toy tiger cub a health check and operating on a cuddly turtle.

Vets in Action is a fun hands-on role-playing experience exploring the life of a Zoo vet, giving children hands-on opportunities to get a behind the scenes look at the work of the Zoo.
