WORLD CLEAN UP DAY

18th September 2021

World Cleanup Day is a global movement, uniting 180 countries and millions of people across the world to clean up the planet.

You don’t have to be a ZooLab Ranger to  know that a cleaner planet means better habitats for animals and thriving ecosystems.

As part of World Cleanup Day 2021,  we’re leading by example; we’ll be cleaning up the area around ZooLab HQ and all our ZooLab Rangers across the UK will be joining  the effort too!

 

Check our social media to see how we get on! Get involved and arrange a clean up at your school! Together we can do this!

You can get involved too!
Sign up for World Cleanup Day and clean up your local area.

Learn how your choices can impact the environment around you with our COP26 themed workshops.

COP stands for Conference of the Parties, and the 2021 meeting will be the 26th meeting, which is why it's called COP26. This global united Nations summit tackles climate change and how countries are responding to the crisis differently.

Due to take place in Glasgow, COP26 will be biggest summit the UK has ever hosted and is being described as the most significant climate event since the 2015 Paris Agreement.

 

At the 2021 conference each nation will be reporting back on progress since the Paris Agreement and present their plan on how to cut their carbon emissions moving forward.

Zoolab Environment Time Machine

KS2 and KS3; 
Ages 7 - 14
 

OVERVIEW: The ZET (Zoolab Environment Time Machine) is an interactive interface which travels long through the past and years into the future looking at climate data. What animals have become extinct animals and what problems is the planet facing?  Comparing data from different eras allows us to form a direct comparison between human behaviour and climate change. 

This year’s climate summit in Scotland is the world’s last best chance to avert climate catastrophe. By implementing change now and educating future generations can we tackle climate issues head on.

Coming Soon!

ZooLab gives back!

ZooLab's ambitions go beyond the UK. We want to support well organised conservation efforts wherever we can, like the project by Nkombi Volunteer Programme which highlights the issue of poaching in South Africa.
