Twycross Zoo to get toddlers talking about saving the planet

There’s never been a better time for parents and pre-schoolers to visit Twycross Zoo thanks to its brand new Toddler Talks which are aimed at inspiring the zoo’s youngest visitors about the importance of conservation.

Starting from 3rd September, alongside Twycross Zoo’s NEW Adult & Toddler offer, two talks have been expertly prepared by the zoo’s award winning Discovery & Learning Team specifically designed to engage those under the age of 5 years on important conservation topics.

Both chimpanzee and tiger Toddler Talks give an insight of conservation with fun activities to captivate little ones, showing that even at a young age we can all make our mark and look after our planet. Talks will take place every Monday to Friday, at 11am for Sumatran tigers and 2:30pm for chimpanzees until 30th September 2019. All participating toddlers will be awarded with a special sticker at the end too! 

Thanks to the midland zoo’s NEW Adult & Toddler offer is available Monday 3rd – Monday 30th September 2019 only on weekdays. One adult and up to two under 5s can gain entry to Twycross Zoo for just £15* – working out as a HUGE saving of up to £35.75!**

Matyas Liptovszky, Head of Life Sciences at Twycross Zoo said “As a conservation charity part of our vision is to educate and inspire the next generation about the endangered species that live on our planet, and how zoo’s and conservation organisations like us at Twycross Zoo work to preserve species from extinction.

“Our experienced Discovery & Learning Team educate school groups throughout the year and with our new Adult & Toddler offer, available through September, we thought what better time to trial new talks for our youngest visitors.”

During a day out at Twycross Zoo, visitors can say hello to over 500 animals from 125 different species, including the zoo’s most recent residents, critically endangered Sumatran tigers, Jahly and Sialang and Nandi the Eastern black rhino.

Little ones can really get up close with animals too with family favourite activities like feeding the lorikeets***, petting the goats, walking with lemurs and exploring the tropical Butterfly Forest.

As well as seeing some of the most endangered species on the planet, visitors can take a break with a hot drink from Costa or lunch at The View Restaurant, both overlooking the Snow leopard habitat, whilst little ‘monkeys’ have lots of fun in the giant, indoor soft play jungle.***

Twycross Zoo relies on the generosity of its visitors to support its conservation work. For more information and to book tickets visit www.twycrosszoo.org/adult-toddler-ticket/.
