A purpose-built centre offering researchers from around the world the opportunity to study the four great apes, as well as 100 endangered species, in naturalistic complex environments. The NSCC will also support conservationists and scientists around the world with a facility for both research and teaching. With the work supporting conservation; animal welfare; biosciences; STEM activities and public engagement with science it will significantly shape the outcomes of the global extinction crisis.
“We are delighted to hear that our bid for the Government’s Levelling Up Fund has been successful and without a doubt this funding will make a huge difference to the conservation of endangered species and our planet. With this new centre, we will be able to establish a national focus on protecting species from extinction, and training and inspiring the conservationists of the future”
