David Meek, Interim CEO of Twycross Zoo, said:

“On behalf of Twycross Zoo, I would like to express our deep sadness at the passing of Her Majesty The Queen. We send our sincere condolences to The Royal Family and join people across the globe in mourning the loss of Her Majesty and remembering her lifetime of service to our country and the Commonwealth. The Queen was a much loved and respected figure during her extraordinary 70 year reign and she will be deeply missed.

“Her Majesty was a great advocate for animals and the natural world, and many of her patronages and charities focused on the preservation of wildlife and the environment. As a conservation charity dedicated to the protection of endangered species, we are grateful to The Queen for raising awareness of these critical issues both here in the UK and around the world during her lifetime of dedicated service.”
