DZG Registrar and Research Co-ordinator, Dr David Beeston – pictured – delivered a powerpoint presentation to the lower sixth pupils at the Stourbridge school about our ongoing conservation work to help save some of the rarest animals in the world. 

Dr Beeston said: “The lecture was wonderful and the students all seemed to enjoy it. I spoke about the importance of zoos and how they make a significant contribution towards conservation and gave them an overview about what human beings are doing to the planet.    “I hope I was able to change some people’s attitudes about what they could be doing more of to help save the earth’s animals.”
