Bear Grylls Survival Academy launches at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo
POSTED 10 Aug 2017 . BY Tom Anstey
Adventure survivalist Bear Grylls and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo in Bedfordshire, UK, have teamed up to bring a brand new summer academy for kids to put their survival skills to the test.

Opened on 29 July and running through to 3 September, visitors can take on a number of Bear Grylls-inspired challenges and activities, including tackling an assault course, learning how to build shelters and testing their wildlife knowledge.

Foods that could be sourced in the wild, including fruits, herbs and mealworms, will be available to sample for the most adventurous of visitors. Children will also be taught how to track animals, while zoo conservationists will teach them to study animal behaviour.

As part of the partnership, daily talks from Bear Grylls Survival Academy instructors will educate visitors on how animals, and humans, can survive in the harshest conditions in the wild, with the talks including live challenges for guests to try and complete.

“This is all about unleashing the inner explorer and the inner adventurer in you,” said Bear Grylls.

“You’re going to learn incredible survival skills, you’re going to get muddy, you’re going to be challenged and maybe a little bit scared at times. But at the end of it you’re going to be bigger, better, stronger, and you’re going to now how to survive, when the chips are really down.

“I challenge you to go for it, get outdoors, embrace the adventure and come along for the ride.”
