Ben Mee: I Bought a Zoo (Tavistock Branch)

Fri. 18 March 2022 at 7:30 pm

A talk by Ben Mee, owner of Dartmoor Zoological Park, a zoo situated north of the village of Sparkwell on the south-west edge of Dartmoor. In 2007, Ben wrote a book called We bought a Zoo, and in 2011 this was turned into a film of the same name starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson. In the talk Benjamin will focus on the breeding programme for endangered species carried out at the zoo.

For those unable to attend the meeting in person, the talk will be broadcast simultaneously on Zoom and a recording will be available to DA members a few days later. To join the Zoom meeting please contact the organiser (details below) at least 3 days beforehand in order to receive a Zoom link.
