ZSL London Zoo is inviting children to become zoo vets this February half term at Vets in Action, an award-winning role-playing experience for budding veterinarians.
Until Sunday 20th February, kids can step into the role of a vet at ZSL London Zoo – during a fun week of interactive family events celebrating their incredible work.
After arriving for work at the Zoo’s specially-recreated zoo vet centre, junior vets will be prepped with hairnets and masks before helping experts examine, diagnose and carry out treatments on soft toys, experiencing first-hand the huge variety of work carried out by the Zoo’s vets, vet nurses and zookeepers – from microchipping meerkats to caring for a wounded lion.
Additional demonstrations and talks throughout the week will take families further inside the exciting world of the Zoo, explaining everything it does to keep its 20,000 residents in tip-top condition.
Vets in Action and all extra activities are included in the entry price to the zoo.
