What are we doing?

Of course, it isn’t just Wild Planet Trust projects that will help the wildlife and wild places of the South West. Conservation is something we can all be responsible for, and one of our key aims is to show our zoo guests how they can be conservation champions at home. When you visit our sites, you’ll see plenty of examples of how we are managing our sites for the benefit of conservation, and helping our native species of plants and animals.
