We amaze, educate and inspire through our ethical and engaging animal encounters.
For many years, ZooLab has played an important part in educating audiences about animals and the natural world. Now more than ever, the team is committed to making a real difference - helping to change attitudes and highlighting what we need to do to protect the environment from the effects of climate change.
Established in 1997, ZooLab remains a family-run business with a mother-and-daughter team at the helm. They are supported by a fantastic group of passionate field presenters and operational support staff who enthusiastically share their love of nature with audiences of all ages.
