Research at CIRCLE

Research is central to the CIRCLE mission to use scientific evidence to guide biodiversity conservation, animal welfare and public understanding of the natural world. Our research is interdisciplinary in nature, intended for practical application in managing wildlife and their habitats, and for improving environmental awareness and action.

Our research includes:

  • Exploring methods for monitoring and conserving biodiversity, and for encouraging everyone to think more about the environment;
  • Investigating ways to assess and improve animal welfare;
  • Assessing the role of zoos in scientific research, conservation, animal welfare, and learning.
