Care for the Rare was established in 2016 with the specific aim of bringing the latest insights in animal welfare science and conservation biology to the management and design of zoos and sanctuaries.
Operating at the nexus between animal welfare, conservation, and public engagement; we combine extensive expertise in zoo and sanctuary design, management, and planning, underpinned by an unsurpassed track record in welfare science and evidence-based facility, and management innovation.
Our mission is to bring the functional complexity of the wild to managed environments, connecting the vibrant lives of wild animals, to communities to inspire compassionate, conservation action.
BRINGING THE FUNCTIONAL COMPLEXITY OF THE WILD TO ZOOS & SANCTUARIES
For the very first time, we can calculate the value of all naturally occurring behavioural and cognitive opportunities to the welfare of captive animals. This is creating a paradigm shift in the design of habitats for wild animals, and a new era of animal welfare innovation. To find out how you can join us on this journey, please contact us.
