In early 2012 Dr Mark Bowler, Prof Hannah Buchanan-Smith and Prof Andy Whiten published a great article on the assessment of the science engagement that goes on in the Living Links Centre. This article has been well received by many zoo educators and scientists alike.
The article was recently recommended to Matt Shipman who writes for SciLogs – The daily storyline of science. He posted a review on their blog commenting on the benefits of zoos in educating people about science outside of the classroom and lecture theatres.
