A popular wildlife park in Shepreth has won two prestigious gongs at a national awards ceremony.

Shepreth Wildlife Park was honoured for its work both in the field of conservation and education at the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums awards in Woburn.

The awards highlight the park’s efforts to conserve native species and to educate visitors through the new Ringo’s Rangers Kids Clubs – which are run after school and during holidays.

Dr Kirsten Pullen, CEO of BIAZA, said: “The BIAZA awards highlight the crucial work carried out in zoos and aquariums.

“All of this year’s award-winning projects show the exceptional contributions our members are making to animal husbandry and welfare, wildlife conservation and public understanding for species both in the UK and overseas.”
