Get Active: volunteer, experience, connect with the natural world

We're so sad to hear the news about Paul O'Grady's passing.  He did so much for people and animals, both in Britain and around the world.  He was a true gentleman, compassion, kind, caring and funny.  All our thoughts are with his family, people and animals, his friends and of course everyone at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.  They have set up a Tribute Fund for Paul O'Grady which you can donate to here.  Rest in peace, Paul, and thank you for all you did to bring animals to us on our screens and for all you did for them.  You will be so missed.

International Zebra Day is on 31 January 2022

Posted on


The 31st January is International Zebra Day and a great chance to find out more about zebras!

There are three species of zebra, and apart from their distinctive black and white markings which make them easily recognisable, you may not know a lot about them, so the day is a good chance to find out more about them.

There's the Grevy Zebra, the Plains Zebra and the Mountain Zebra. 

ZSL has 10 things you didn’t know about Zebras on their website – take a look and see how many of the 10 things you knew!

And you can find out more about charities working to help zebras here.
