Zoo calls for volunteers in its hour of need Zoo calls for volunteers in its hour of need

As ZSL London Zoo begins to get back on its feet, the organisation is putting out a call for volunteers who have time to help out. It comes after three months of unprecedented closure, which has seen zoos across the UK come under enormous financial pressure.
