Horticulture and Conservation students aid Twycross Zoo with Heritage Lottery Fund bid for up to £70,000

Students at NTU have been providing advice and guidance on a Heritage Lottery Fund bid as part of our strategic partnership with Twycross Zoo.

Twenty two final-year students on the BSc (Hons) Horticulture and BSc (Hons) Wildlife Conservation and Management degree courses were given the chance to help staff at Twycross make the bid for up to £70,000 to improve the reed-bed nature reserve at the zoo.

Over the course of a term, students worked in groups of four or five to undertake feasibility research and then present their suggestions and proposals to Twycross Zoo staff.

The proposals were well received, and Twycross Zoo are currently in the process of selecting the best suggestions and collating them into a final bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for project funding.
