Many people have donated their old Christmas trees to Linton Zoo in Cambridgeshire, England. The zoo gives the lions the trees to play with.

Some of the trees are given to the lions as toys. Others are burnt to heat some of the buildings. Trees that still have roots are being replanted in the snowy owl enclosure.

The zoo says that recycling the Christmas trees provide the lions with “hours of fun”.
