Our Strategy

We use an evidence-based approach to help in the decision making that improves the management of the animals and plants in our care, influences the sustainability of wild populations, and inspires the next generation of conservationists.

We make a unique contribution.

 

We choose projects where our scientific expertise and effective partnerships enable us to make a unique contribution. Working with key in-country partners, we can help achieve conservation impact on the ground.

 

WORK WITH US

A Global Strategy

Our conservation activities, both in the zoo and in the field, are focused on six regions across the globe, which represent some of the planet’s most biodiverse and highly threatened ecoystems. 

FIND OUT WHERE WE WORK

We use a ‘one plan approach’ to tackle the causes of extinction.

 

We use a combination of methods to tackle threats to species, working with both experts in the zoo and in the field. Research is focused on our six scientific specialisms, resulting in the ultimate ‘conservation toolkit’.

OUR DEDICATED TEAM OF SPECIALISTS

As we continue to deliver our strategic development plan for the zoo itself, the regions where we focus our work will be represented in the different zones that visitors will experience during a visit.

The first of these zones, Islands, is already complete and represents our conservation work to prevent the extinction of species in South-east Asia, in particular Indonesia and the Philippines. This allows us to promote and interpret our conservation work to visitors and engage people in the different ways in which they can join us to help prevent extinction.
