Flamingos, Hanwell Zoo

Win a season ticket for the zoo – there is plenty to do

You may have read the news that another baby was born at Hanwell Zoo in the spring, and other newcomers are waiting to see you as well? Well, why not have a go at our competition to win a free season ticket to the local gem?

“It’s our first baby loris, which is a huge milestone for the zoo,” said the zoo’s manager Jim Gregory. “The grey slender loris is part of a European endangered species breeding programme, which plays a key role in the conservation of endangered species. It feels great to know we were able to play a small part in that.”

Read more about the new addition in our story about the loris.

Other recent additions to the zoo include tamarin monkeys, a margay, an armadillo and miniature donkeys – joining the dozens of other species that already call Hanwell Zoo home, from lemurs and meerkats to flamingos and leafcutter ants.

Social distancing requirements have meant that a maximum of 100 people were allowed in the zoo at any one time, so it is worth checking whether these restrictions are still in place before visiting – because you will need to book in advance on the zoo’s website.

The competition

To be in with a chance of winning one of the zoo’s ‘family friend’ season tickets, for you and a child, correctly answer the question below. You need to send it to aroundealing@ealing.gov.uk by the deadline of 11.59pm on Monday, 12 July 2021 – and make sure you use the subject line Zoo competition, or your entry might not be counted. Please include your full name and a contact number.

The season ticket will run from the date of it being issued, for a year. The ‘family friend’ ticket allows the adult on the card and one child into Hanwell Zoo for 12 months.

Question: What is the name of the largest living rodent species on Earth, which you can find at the zoo?

The winner will be drawn randomly from among the correct entries after the deadline. Only the winner will be contacted.
