Venue: 

Twycross Zoo is set in more than 80 acres, we have around 500 animals of almost 100 species to see, including many endangered animals and also native species in the Zoo’s Nature Reserve.

The Zoo was founded in 1963 by pet shop owners Molly Badham and Natalie Evans, after the pair’s increasing zoological collection outgrew their three-quarter-acre site in Hints, Staffordshire.

Twycross Zoo is now renowned as a World Primate Centre and has a wide variety of monkeys and apes including the UK’s only group of bonobos.

We have breeding groups of many endangered primate species so we often have babies and toddlers playing around in our great ape groups, and in many of our monkey groups.

We also hold a range of other species including giraffes, snow leopards, penguins, meerkats, tapirs, kangaroos, snakes, flamingos and the world’s rarest big cat, the Amur leopard, plus more.

Have you thought about organising a PSGB meeting?

Please contact us if you would like to volunteer to organise a PSGB meeting - currently our meetings are being held online.  

Organising a meeting will not only help PSGB, but will also provide you with opportunities to create a partially themed meeting that may have a particular bearing on your own work, or to invite speakers who have inspired your own research. It is also fun to do! You do not need to have a PhD; postgraduate students are just as welcome. Showing you have organised a scientific meeting will also look great on your CV.

We have guidelines that can help you plan and structure your meeting and a team of experienced people who can provide you with advice.

If you would like organise a future meeting (summer or winter), please contact our Meetings Officer, Andrea Dempsey ([email protected]) to talk about what is involved.
