Zoo Event - World Toilet Day (17 November 2017)


World Toilet Day

In 2015, the United Nations launched the Sustainable Development Goals, which include a target to provide every human with access to toilets by 2030. How can we reach this goal and what are other organisations doing to help? Bring your toilet humour the Zoo and learn to love your loo! Workshops include learning about water treatment at the Zoo, wetlands as habitat and exciting information about the private life of some of our animals!
