Love Your Zoo
(Saturday May 24th – Saturday, May 31st, 2014

The Love Your Zoo campaign was launched by BIAZA.

Its aim is to encourage people to visit their local BIAZA zoos and aquariums and to not only have a great day out, but also learn just how much they do for conservation, education and research.

Zoos, aquariums and wildlife centres across the UK will be taking part again this year and will be putting on a week of fun activities for you and your family.

Let us know how you enjoy the week by emailing and by visiting the BIAZA Facebook or Twitter Page.
