Let's Talk About: Lockdown and Emerging from Hibernation

Updated: Mar 3, 2022

Let's catch up!

What a year 2020 has been (and it is only September)! We would like to take this moment to thank you all for your continued support .

Darwin's theory of natural selection taught us that we need to adapt and overcome in order to survive and we have done just that in response to the situation we have found ourselves in over the last 6 months. We have made some positive operational changes by increasing the variety of ways we can interact safely with you to include fantastic digital sessions.

The care and safety of our staff, animals and customers is our top priority and we will continue to assess this evolving situation. In the meantime, ZooLab is working hard to be prepared and ready to return safely to face to face events as soon as we can.


Going digital

Over the last few months, we have enjoyed meeting a lot of you digitally through summer library sessions and care home videos. We expanded our public offering to include a Zoom Animal Kids Club (thank you everyone who took part), digital parties and a Live To Your Living Room, 1-to-1 Animal Encounter.

Moving forward into the new academic year, we have ensured that all of our workshops can be performed to the same high standards in our ‘Virtual Classroom’ that you have come to expect from a physical ZooLab workshop. Our team is also dedicated to producing resources to help hit cross-curricular outcomes including science, literacy and math.
