I’d like to receive updates from ZSL about upcoming events, experiences and offers at London and Whipsnade Zoos and ZSL’s wider conservation work.

11,000 animals step onto the scales for the UK’s largest Zoo’s Annual Weigh In. A huge scale operation has started at Whipsnade Zoo, as keepers began coaxing thousands of animals, including lemurs, bears and chameleons, onto the scales for the Zoo’s Annual Weigh. 

Richard joined them and here asks Zoo Keeper, Tim Savage, why they carry out an annual weigh in.
