We're a major supporter of conservation and research in the wild.
Each year the zoo is involved in many conservation projects working directly with threatened species in the wild. We participate in field conservation through Field Programmes, Field Projects, Studentships and Scholarships and Technical Support.
We have strong partnerships with a large number of conservation professionals and organisations as well as working alongside partners and local communities to educate and protect about species and habitats.
The zoo attracts 1.4 million visitors each year and depends on this income to directly support conservation activities and help protect wildlife in the UK and around the world.
