for the future you

We are thrilled to be collaborating with our longstanding partner the Bristol Zoological Society on the transformative Bristol Zoo Project. In July 2023, Wild Place Project was rebranded as Bristol Zoo Project. Our exciting partnership offers students a unique opportunity to study at the country's newest education centre within a conservation focused, modern zoo (opening 2026). Prior to the centre's opening, you will have the chance to witness the intricate process of a zoo's transition from one site to another, studying at both the Conservation Education Centre in Clifton and Bristol Zoo Project. This collaboration provides you with a first-hand experience of the complexities involved in zoo relocation, and in the design of a new conservation focused zoo, while immersing you in comprehensive learning opportunities in zoo management, enclosure design, and animal welfare. By studying at the Bristol Zoo Project, you will gain invaluable insights into innovative practices and cutting-edge conservation initiatives, preparing you for a successful career in zoological management and conservation.
