Conservation Talks

Considering booking one of our Conservation Outreach Talks?

We have two talks on offer. The first is an introductory talk about Colchester Zoo's history and its modern day role, along with the work of its charitable arm, Action for the Wild, and the support of conservation projects around the world.

If you have had this talk, then why not book our second talk, explaining how we care for animals at Colchester Zoo, covering case studies of animal training, enrichment and breeding.

What time of day to book?

Talks can take place anytime throughout the day and we are more than happy to do evening talks.

How long do they last?

Generally our talks last from 45 minutes to 1 hour, with time for questions afterwards.

What equipment do we need?

We bring our own equipment for the powerpoint presentation, however it would be beneficial if you could provide a small table to put the projector on. If you would rather we use your projector screen or a wall to show the presentation on, just let us know.

How much is it?

Talks are priced at £60 plus £10 travel; all cheques can be given after the talk and the £70 should be made payable to 'Action for the Wild'.
