Newquay Zoo (World War Zoo Gardens Project)

The World War Zoo Gardens Project at Newquay Zoo is based online at the blog covering WW1 and WW2 and physically based onsite around a small recreated WW2 wartime zoo keeper's allotment at Newquay Zoo, which is part of a not-for-profit education and scientific charity, the Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust.
Newquay Zoo (and its sister Paignton Zoo) offers schools workshops on wartime life (currently WW2 but researching WW1) and its links to sustainability. Each year for visitors some talks or temporary small display areas, all focussing on how zoos and associated botanic gardens survived wartime challenges in WW1 and WW2 worldwide.
