Fascinating history of London Zoo going back right to the beginnings in 1826 when Sir Stamford Raffles founded the Zoological Society of London. Many people who contributed to London Zoo over the years are included, such as Bartlett the first superintendent, Peter Chamlers Mitchell and Julian Huxley, Jack Lester, George Cansdale and Desmond Morris.
'Barrie' Barrington-Johnson has been fascinated by animals and by London Zoo since he was a boy. He studied zoology to BSc level and has been a Fellow of ZSL (Zoological Society of London) since the age of 21. He is one of the original zoo volunteers, a member of the Society's Education Committee and was on the Society's Council for fourteen years. He also chaired the committee which proposed the way forward for London Zoo after the difficult financial period of 1990/1.
