Conservation Resolution – January 2018

Twycross Zoo has set a 12 month conservation challenge where we plan to resolve 12 Conservation Resolutions throughout 2018 – you can get involved too from the comfort of your home!

My January Conservation Resolution is to eat more sustainable fish and avoid eating threatened species

Eat like a Penguin!

Eat sustainably like our penguins at The Catch, our very own Fish Bar here at the Zoo.

We’re proud to offer home cooked food with fresh ingredients and sustainable cod – yum!

Tuck into Fish and Chips, a Fish Finger Sandwich plus lots more.
