City College Plymouth Sponsors Dartmoor Zoo Newsletter

Dartmoor Zoo would like to welcome City College Plymouth on board as the exclusive sponsor of our E-newsletter.

Their support will go towards enabling our fantastic education and research departments continue their wonderful work researching and raising awareness of conservation issues.

Moving forwards we hope that the partnership will grow and that students of the College will benefit by having the opportunity to put their learning into practice by taking part in practical tasks up at the Zoo, from Engineering steel gates, to plastering, building walls, and conducting studies into visitor patterns at the Zoo.

CEO of the Zoo, Benjamin Mee, said: “Collaborating with educational establishments is something I seek to do on a regular basis here at the Zoo. It is a wonderful resource which is ideal for helping students develop their skills for work and progress down their chosen career paths, whilst at the same time enabling the Zoo to carry out projects which otherwise may not have been possible. Together we can achieve amazing things and I look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with City College Plymouth.”

So thank you to City College Plymouth for their valuable support, and watch this space for more developments!
