National Zoological Society of Wales at Colwyn Bay
We began assisting in the completion of a £3.5 million funding capital development package towards the start of this year. This initiative involves an FE partner and potentially 2 leading universities. Amongst other aims the new exhibit looks to draw young people into science, and we are specifically considering using tropical species to illustrate fascinating science around optics and bio-photonics. Zoological Director Nick Jackson said: "We are very pleased to be working with John Regan Associates. It is early days in terms of grant applications, but already John Regan's dynamic approach is creating a positive build-up of support for what will be our biggest development yet."
