The meerkats at ZSL London Zoo have posted their letters to Santa ahead of the arrival of Christmas. Keepers provided the mob with a miniature mailbox which they had hidden crickets in for the meerkats to eat.


With London easing restrictions ZSL London Zoo will reopen on December 2nd 2020. They are calling for visitors to book a ticket with the knowledge that the zoo is a safe outdoor location.

Luckily the meerkats wishes for Santa may have already come true.


Zookeeper Luke Taylor explained: “All the meerkats want for Christmas is for people to visit the zoo this December – because booking a ticket will support the expert care of our 20,000 animals during this difficult time, and ZSL’s global science and conservation work.


“Being closed for a combined total of 15 weeks so far this year means we’ve lost out on millions of pounds, raised by vital ticket sales, which funds our work: by celebrating Christmas at London Zoo people can enjoy a safe and fun day out while supporting ZSL’s work.”
