Conservation talk

Students at the University of Wolverhampton heard about the importance of captive breeding programmes, when DZG paid them a visit.


DZG Registrar and Research Co-ordinator, Dr David Beeston – pictured above – spoke to a group of animal behaviour and conservation students about conservation and the roles of zoos.

Dr Beeston, said: “It was a really interesting visit. I used a power point presentation as part of my lecture to highlight the significant contribution zoo’s make towards the animals on the planet and the students quizzed me with lots of great questions at the end.

“We’re also hoping to welcome some of the students to DZG during the next few months to carry out their own research projects as part of their degree course, so it will be good to see how they progress.”
