Things to do Coronation weekend
Take part in the Big Help Out at Whipsnade Zoo on 8 May, and have a special opportunity get stuck in cleaning out our centre for elephant care and weed our world famous chalk lion. At this special royal weekend you can celebrate the Kings Coronation at the UK's biggest Zoo, getting up close to the worlds tallest animal, spending time in the biggest butterfly house in the UK and helping keep an eye on our new baby pygmy goats at Hullabazoo farm.
To sign up, download the Big Help Out app and search 'Zoo' to find our activities and join us.
By volunteering with us, you'll be playing your part in our global wildlife conservation mission, we've played our part in restoring extinct in the wild species like the Przewalski's horse and scimitar-horned oryx back into their native habitats, whilst leading fresh water fish conservation.
Royal Coronation at the Zoo
You'll be joining a royal tradition at the Zoo, following in the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth II who opened our centre for elephant care. As a ZSL conservation Zoo, we've historically had a reigning monarch as our Royal Patron throughout our history, so by joining us you are honouring the support we've received since we first opened our gates almost 100 years ago.
Spend your Coronation Weekend at our amazing Zoo in the heart of Bedfordshire. Find out more about other volunteering opportunities at the Zoo.
