24th March 2011 – Dartmoor Zoo special event

Jaguar at Dartmoor Zoo

What a great meeting we had at Dartmoor Zoo on 24 March!

This was one of our special events, open to a range of guests, and resulted in 50 attendees.

After a lot of networking and breakfast, we were treated to a presentation by Ben Mee, Owner of the Zoo, and he enthralled us with his experiences of buying the zoo (a bit scary when the jaguar broke free!) and his dealings with Hollywood in the making of a film entitled ‘Ben’s Zoo’ following the publication of his book.  Those who did not have pressing appointments thoroughly enjoyed a  tour around the zoo on a beautiful sunny day, when Ben and Alex Smale introduced us to many of the animals.  Certainly a meeting with a difference – and fun!
