Meet The Speakers
Here at Twycross Zoo we work hard both in the zoo and across the world to support our conservation projects – to help save endangered species and their habitats.
We will be joined by world-renowned ape conservationists who’ll share their vast experience in the field about the crisis apes face and how they fight for their survival both in the wild and in captivity.
