Conservation Talk: Breeding Success

The role of zoos and conservation breeding at Twycross Zoo hosted by Neil Dorman, Curator of Conservation Programmes and Planning.

Zoos play a vital role in the conservation of many species including managing carefully coordinated breeding programmes. These breeding programmes require successful international cooperation between collections to ensure the survival of endangered species in captivity.

  • What does it take to breed endangered species in captivity?
  • How do zoos work together?
  • What role does Twycross zoo play in conservation breeding?
  • How is breeding considered when designing new enclosures?

The life sciences team at Twycross Zoo have had a busy year in 2018, with many important new arrivals that continue to develop our conservation breeding portfolio. Neil will guide guests through answers to these questions and share stories from 2018, including key events such as births and animal moves, highlighting the importance of conservation breeding programmes for zoos.
