Chimpanzee Keeper Talk

Chimpanzee Keeper Talk

Coming over for lunch? Observe how chimpanzee family dynamics work up close, as the troop has their midday feed. You’ll find out what happens when a baby chimp transitions to being an adult, what’s threatening their numbers in the wild, and how your old mobile phone can help in preserving their habitat.

  • Free with Zoo entry 
  • When: 12:00pm daily 
  • No booking required (however, talks fill up fast so arrive early to save your place)

Virtual keeper talk

If you can't make it to the Zoo, enjoy our virtual keeper talk from the comfort of home!

Great apes NOT monkeys, chimpanzees are our closest living relative, sharing more than 98% of our genetic blueprint.
