Thriving, not just surviving: how zoos are championing animal welfare

With animal welfare and behaviour specialist Sarah Richdon

Saturday 12 October, 14.30-16.00

These talks give an exclusive opportunity to hear from our experts who will delve into different aspects of our work at Bristol Zoological Society.

Get the latest news about our animals and discover more about our incredible conservation and education projects in Bristol and around the world.


Animal welfare is one of the highest priorities for Bristol Zoological Society as it not only ensures happy and content animals, but also supports our conservation and educational goals.

However, there is a lot of confusion around what animal welfare really means and how it is monitored and altered. Come along to find out how our animal welfare scientists are ensuring the highest standards of care for animals at BZS, utilising progressive scientific methods.

This talk will be held from 2.30-3.30pm with plenty of time for questions at the end, ending at 4pm.
