ZSL conservation scientists and keepers team up with leading writers to talk about the animals in ZSL London Zoo. Alongside the animals, the writers speak imaginatively about their responses to them and ZSL’s experts talk about their ecology and conservation.
The audience will be able to ask questions of author, scientist and keeper and have books signed over a glass of wine.
These unique evenings will be held within the animal exhibits of ZSL London Zoo.
