We prioritise research that will have a positive impact on the living world, either directly through improved animal management or indirectly through the promotion of conservation action.

We welcome collaborations with PhD students and professional researchers and have conducted many successful projects with postgraduate training programmes.

We also provide opportunities for students studying undergraduate or masters degrees to conduct observational research on our range of animals and plants.
