ABOUT US

Founded in 1826, the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) is an international scientific, conservation and educational charity whose mission is to promote and achieve the worldwide conservation of animals and their habitats.

Our mission is realised through our groundbreaking science, our active conservation projects in more than 50 countries and our two Zoos, ZSL London Zoo and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Respecting and valuing animals and the natural world

Our belief is that a diverse and healthy natural world is valuable in its own right and is essential for ensuring secure and healthy lives for people. This motivates ZSL’s vision and mission, and our other core values follow from this.

Inspiring conservation action

By actively 'Working for Wildlife' and showcasing our efforts in the field, we hope to motivate others to take conservation action in their daily lives.

Achieving excellence in our field

Building on our heritage, Royal Patronage since 1831 and reputation as a learned society, we aim to be an authoritative source of information and good practice for the scientific study, conservation and husbandry of animals.

We aim also to make efficient and effective use of available resources to achieve the highest possible standards in everything we do, in the operation of a successful and innovative conservation organisation.

Acting ethically, responsibly and sustainably

We aim to operate in fair and justifiable ways that do not conflict with our mission or objectives, and which respect the environment.

Valuing everyone we work with

We support and value teamwork and collaboration, strive for fair and equitable treatment of everyone with whom we work and come into contact with, and aim to act with respect and courtesy in all our dealings.

ZSL MISSION

To promote and achieve the worldwide conservation of animals and their habitats. This is reinforced through our organisational strapline 'Let's Work for Wildlife'.

ZSL STRATEGIC AIMS

ZSL is committed to promoting zoological and conservation research, encouraging public engagement with wildlife and generating funds for the advancement of the ZSL Mission.

WORKING FOR ZSL

Our scientists in the laboratory and field, animal management teams at both zoos and our veterinarians contribute wide-ranging skills and experience to both practical conservation and the scientific research that underpins our work.

We are committed to the principle of equal opportunities in employment. We apply policies that are determined solely by job criteria and personal ability.
