In celebration of National Poetry Day, members of Hubbub will appear at ZSL London Zoo as part of the Authors for Animals series. This event will takes place on a Saturday afternoon, starting with a tour of the Rainforest Enclosure with a ZSL mammals keeper. See if you can spot the sloths Leander and Marilyn. They’ll probably be doing what they do best – resting.
Poet Tamarin Norwood will give her take on sloths and English Literature Lecturer Dr Michael Greaney will ask, “Would you like to be described as a sloth?” and will discuss the history of the concept – in humans and animals. The ZSL keeper will answer all your questions about sloths. Are they really lazy or is that something of a myth? The event will be chaired by broadcaster and writer, Claudia Hammond.
Entrance via ZSL London Zoo Main Entrance at 4pm
