We are a network of UK zoos & universities dedicated to new learning and collaboration

What is New Zoo…?

New Zoo is an informal coalition of UK zoo organisations and universities looking to permanently change and to widen conceptions of what a zoo project can be, and how it can benefit society.

New Zoo looks to deliver this through four specific capital projects at four specific sites in Scotland, Wales and England

New Zoo is dedicated to a philosophy of new learning and to new forms of collaboration

New Zoo will ultimately cross evaluate and carry out new research on the delivery of its four projects and disseminate the results widely to the benefit of the wider zoo sector and Society as a whole

What is New Zoo not…?

New Zoo is not ‘a new zoo’!

New Zoo is not a new organisation, entity nor collective. All the four participating organisations and their projects remain totally independent. The association between them is purely informal and practical.
