Supporting  conservation and preserving endangered species

There are some amazing people working hard, in often difficult and challenging situations, to help conserve animal species, and the habitats that animals and people depend on.

Successful conservation initiatives are long-term projects that rely on support from zoos like Twycross Zoo.

Twycross Zoo supports several conservation field projects, including those for bonobos, chimpanzees, gorillas and gibbons.

These vital field activities can help to ensure we can preserve these amazing animals for the future.

Join us, and learn more about Twycross Zoo’s ape conservation and other projects we’re involved in, at our Apes an Grapes Conservation Talk and Wine Tasting and Evening – by doing so you will help us, to help ape conservation, as you do with every single zoo visit.
