New Zoo is an informal coalition of 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 specific capital projects at specific sites in the UK, and through the ‘Bio Parc’ concept is also pursuing dialogues in Colombia, Cyprus, Vietnam, Canada and Japan
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 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 participating organisations and their projects remain totally independent. The association between them is purely informal and practical.
