Nothing Moves us Like Citroën
THE PARTNERSHIP -NOTHING MOVES US LIKE CITROËN
At Citroën, we believe in striving to create a ‘better everyday’. That’s why we’ve launched our new partnership with Citizen Zoo, a Social Enterprise dedicated to rewilding in the UK.
Citizen Zoo work with a network of volunteers to restore nature, helping species and habitats thrive.
Citroën have provided Citizen Zoo with an all-electric ë-Berlingo Van to support their rewilding activities. The ë-Berlingo Van will be used to support several of their rewilding projects over the coming months, including releasing Beavers into west London, and Large Marsh Grasshoppers into various sites across Norfolk, as well as the restoration of Kingston’s largest nature reserve.
Additionally, having released Water Voles onto a southwest London River last year, the van will be essential for transporting vital equipment to monitor the population and further improve their habitat.
The partnership will allow Citizen Zoo to travel around the country to support their project with zero-tailpipe emissions.
THE PARTNERSHIP -REWILDING OUR FUTURE
Lucas Ruzo, Chief Executive Officer of Citizen Zoo said:
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Citroën and are deeply thankful for their support, as they have shown true leadership in their commitment to rewilding, and the electric car transition. The ë-Berlingo will help us by providing the mobility we need to move freely across London and farther afield, to deliver on the projects we lead with communities working to restore nature, and rewild our future.”
Greg Taylor, Managing Director of Citroën UK, said
“It’s fantastic that we are able to support Citizen Zoo in this partnership with an ë-Berlingo. Citizen Zoo do vital work restoring habitats to their functional states, reintroducing species and empowering people and communities. I can’t wait to see the zero-tailpipe emissions ë-Berlingo out and about supporting the incredible work that Citizen Zoo do supporting wildlife across the country.”
