Chessington World of Adventures is inviting guests to donate their leftover Christmas meat to new resident lion cubs.
The ‘turkey drop’ service will not only help feel the baby lions- three new female Asiatic lion cubs born just this autumn- but will help reduce waste over the festive season.
More than 4 million Christmas dinners are thrown away each year- the equivalent of 263,000 turkeys and 17.2 million Brussels sprouts, according to research by Unilever.
Chessington ‘Turkey Drop’ Executive, Oli Whiteway, said: "Our three new lion cubs are just developing a taste for meat and what better way to reduce Christmas wastage than giving leftover turkey to our cubs.
“The festive season tends to be a period of over-indulgence and we want to make sure no uncooked meat goes to waste.
“If you have any turkey leftovers this Christmas make sure you get in touch."
