Partnership with Bristol Zoo

Redmaids’ High will help to save lemurs from extinction, by sponsoring the lemur walk-through and enclosure at Bristol Zoo Gardens. Their natural habitat on the island of Madagascar is under threat because it is being destroyed by people cutting down trees to plant crops.

During their visit the children learnt more about this endangered species and investigated animals that come from eggs, which links to a current infant science project.

Mrs Lisa Brown, Headteacher at Redmaids’ High Infant and Junior School, said: “An important part of our school ethos is broadening horizons and developing a global outlook in our pupils, equipping them for our modern world.

“This partnership feeds directly into this, while supporting vital conservation work, including further research and education in Madagascar.”

As a charity, Bristol Zoo Gardens relies on the support of its visitors and sponsors to fund its animal conservation work in the zoo and with endangered species around the world.

Head of Marketing at Redmaids’ High School, Kate Hodgins, said: “As an educational charity, our partnership with Bristol Zoo aligns closely with our own community involvement programme that sees students, staff and parents fund-raising for many local and overseas projects.”
