Wildlife expert and TV personality, Bill Oddie will be at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park today to inspire youngsters about the natural world.
The former Springwatch presenter will be taking part in Love Your Zoo Week, a campaign launched by the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums ( BIAZA) to teach people about the important role of zoos.
He said: "Good zoos play an important role in conservation.This seems to be the case for BIAZA zoos; good zoos know it's no longer acceptable to just say "here's some animals...come along and wonder at them".
"At the same time, they are raising funds for captive breeding programmes for endangered species and reintroducing them to the wild. Let's also not forget that zoos offer people what could be their first contact with animals. Go on...love your zoo!"
