conservation

We already have a strong commitment to conservation, we house several endangered species and contribute to international breeding programs. As well as our exotic residents, Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park are committed to native species conservation. We have provided homes to our wonderful resident wildlife, including foxes, badgers, hedgehogs, bats, songbirds, buzzards, woodpeckers and a whole host of creepy crawlies, including the threatened Violet Oil Beetle.

Over the past 5 years we have worked with the RSPCA to house and rehabilitate rescued Grey Seal Pups. These Seal Pups are then released by our staff back into the wild on the Combe Martin beach just 2 miles from us here in Devon. By carrying out this collaborative rescue work we are directly contributing to the conservation of our native marine wildlife!

Here are just a few more examples of our conservation and charity projects:

– We support international animal conservation campaigns such as Barbary Macaque Awareness and Conservation, SANCCOB, Lemur Love, Proyecto Titi, EAZA South East Asia Campaign, BIAZA Helping Habitats and many more.
– We also support AAP Primadomus European rescue centre and have provided a home for many confiscated and abused animals.
– We participate in a number of European Breeding Programs for endangered animals.
– We actively campaign and educate against exotic animals being kept as pets.

biaza

The British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) is the professional body representing the best zoos and aquariums in the UK and Ireland. We have more than 100 zoo and aquarium members whom we support in their commitment to be at the forefront of conservation, education and research.

These days’ modern zoos and aquariums are much more than places where the public can go to view a range of different animals. Whilst providing a safe and fun-filled family day out is something our members are understandably proud of, by displaying the BIAZA logo our zoos and aquariums are also demonstrating their dedication to conserving the natural world through research and conservation programmes and to educating and inspiring their visitors to do the same.

BIAZA is a member of both the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA), and the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) and through this network our members collaborate on a global scale to further conservation science, natural history and environmental education and animal welfare.
