ZSL Archives is the institutional archive for the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), a conservation charity and learned society founded in 1826. We hold historical material about the society’s activities, conservation and scientific work, and our two Zoos: London and Whipsnade.
Anyone is welcome to visit the archive, and they are free to use, but you must contact us first to make an appointment.
We’re also happy to answer any questions about the history of ZSL – but we are unable to carry out extensive research for users. Please see the contact us page.
