If you’re looking for an activity to while away the rest of the school holidays or weekends as the autumn breezes in, Keeper Talks & Feeding Times at Battersea Park Children’s Zoo could be just the ticket.
The Zoo’s Keeper Talks run daily and offer kids the chance to learn about amazing animals from the people who know and love them best - their dedicated keepers.
Every day throughout August and until the end of December, visitors of all ages can join the zookeepers at feeding times to find out more about the animals they care for as well as the zoo's important conservation work.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.
Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.
We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.
However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.
