Mission: Clean Up

Updated: Mar 4, 2022

World Cleanup Day (18th September) is a civic movement, uniting 180 countries worldwide to clean up the planet. In one day, World Cleanup Day 2019 brought together 21 million people from 180 countries who cleaned up over 100 thousand tons of waste in 24 hours; this year's event will be bigger than ever.

You do not have to be a ZooLab Ranger to know that a cleaner planet means better habitats for animals and thriving ecosystems. As part of World Clean up Day 2021, we pledge to collect bags full of rubbish throughout the UK to help improve the life of local wildlife. Together we can do this!

Ready for the shocking facts?
