Huge Congratulations to our Izzy who received an accreditation top project award from the Royal Society of Biology at the House of Commons last week ????????

Izzy's dissertation was a study in to public perception of animal sanctuaries & their role in animal welfare through studying chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) ????


"Does anthropomorphism aid animal conservation?" earned Izzy the highest project mark awarded across the year at the University of South Wales!!


Izzy said ????

"My dissertation would not have been possible without Jan, Graham and the wonderful staff at WAMS. It was an honour to spend every day at the sanctuary talking to visitors and observing the chimpanzees, and I learnt so much. The sanctuary welcomed me with open arms, as they always do, and were so supportive throughout my project. I feel so lucky to help shine a light on their dedication to the rescued animals they care for, as they really pave the way for what it means to be a true Sanctuary"


Thank you to all the visitors who answered Izzy's questions & Congratulations on an amazing result ???? You should feel very proud ????
