ZSL London Zoo is offering a fantastic opportunity for kids this half -term as they invite them to become a zoo vet for a day.
Running from Saturday 10th to Sunday 18th February, Vets in Action allows children to step into the role of a vet at the zoo’s Animal Hospital, an award-winning role-playing experience for budding veterinarians.
After arriving for work at the hospital’s reception, junior vets will be prepped with hairnets and masks before joining the team in the zoo’s specially recreated interactive vet centre. They will then be able to assist the experts and examine, x-ray and carry out treatments on toy animals – experiencing first-hand the huge variety of work carried out by the zoo’s vets, vet nurses and zookeepers on a daily basis.
A packed schedule of talks and activities throughout the week will take families further inside the exciting world of the zoo’s animals and the people who look after them – explaining everything the ZSL team does to keep 18,000 residents in tip-top condition, from microchipping penguins to checking tiger teeth.
