We hope to inspire more people to take up a career in conservation with our brand new apprenticeship scheme!

Have you always dreamed of working in conservation, but don’t know where to start? Then our careers in conservation event is for you!

After an incredible summer celebrating the Olympics in Tokyo, here in Britain the British & Irish Association of Zoos & Aquariums are handing out gold, silver and bronze to some of the very best projects among zoo conservation in their annual awards.

Ahead of the launch of our  Conservation Training Academy course     An Introduction to Zoo and Wildlife Endocrinology, we speak to the event’s co-host and conservation expert Dr Veronica (Ronnie) Cowl  to find out more about her career highlights.

As Reproductive Biology Coordinator, we find out more about her role in our mission to prevent extinction, and how she ended up working among Chester Zoo’s extraordinary team of Conservation Scientists

With her unique experience and insight, she shares her advice to budding conservationists looking to pursue a career in the field of biology…

Congratulations to our newly trained Youth Champion Volunteers and Support Volunteers! 

Since 2002, we’ve been inspiring and educating the next generation of conservationists by offering a number of placement opportunities to university students.
