Whipsnade Zoo

ZSL Whipsnade Zoo is one of Europe's largest wildlife conservation parks. Set in 600 acres of beautiful parkland on the Chiltern Hills, the zoo is home to more than 2,500 animals, many of which are endangered in the wild. It is run by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) - an international scientific, conservation and educational charity whose key role is the conservation of animals and their habitats. ZSL is actively involved in field conservation in over 50 countries worldwide.
