Sophie’s spotlight on native species

Upper Primates Senior Keeper Sophie Dugmore is keen on getting more involved in DZG’s work on native species after attending a two-day workshop in Hampshire.

Sophie, pictured above at New Forest Wildlife Park, attended the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) native species working group at Sparsholt College near Winchester earlier this month.

The conference covered a diverse range of presentations on native species and talks on developing woodland at UK visitor attractions.

It also included a guided tour of the nearby New Forest Wildlife Park which houses a huge array of native species. 

She said: “It was really interesting and a great way to meet people from other animal attractions and share ideas.

“I’m hoping to get more involved in the work we do at Dudley with native species which should be exciting.”
