The Women Who Inspired Us!

Updated: Mar 3, 2022

In celebration of International Women's Day, we asked our Rangers to tell us about the women who inspired them.


Diane Fossey

Primatologist and Conservationist

“Diane Fossey gave her life to protect gorillas in Rwanda. She destroyed poachers equipment and took a hugely proactive step in fighting poaching, habitat conservation and animal protection. It cost her her life, but without her and her teams work, gorillas would likely be extinct today”

Lucy, ZooLab’s Surrey Ranger
