About Us

Join the Zoo Rangers in our Botanist’s Lab throughout the day for interactive workshops exploring the exciting world of poo science (aka endocrinology!)

Wildlife Health and Wellbeing and Conservation Breeding and Management are two of our specialisms.  Our teams collect a whole range of animal poo every day, which we use to monitor animal hormones and analyse results so we can make decisions based on scientific evidence.  These scientific techniques are not just used to help animals in the zoo, we apply them in the field to help with species conservation of wild populations (one plan approach).

Activity is free to take part, usual zoo admission applies.
