Conservation and Research at BCA Zoo

BCA Zoo has proudly supported numerous important in-situ and ex-situ conservation projects over the years, a number of which are directly related to some of the critically endangered species you can see at the zoo.

For 2023 we have decided to focus our fundraising efforts towards Saving Wildcats a charity that is dedicated to helping the reintroduction of Scottish Wildcats along with working on action plans to secure their future for generations to come.

The staff and students at BCA Zoo have done everything from organising fundraising events to participating in writing best practice husbandry guidelines for some of the critically endangered animals that we work with.

Below are a number of the projects which we have supported. You can read what the project involves and what BCA Zoo is doing to help.
