The haircutting event will take place on 10th June at Hopwood Hall College (Middleton campus) during the colleges community fun day, if anybody would like to turn up to spectate in person they are more than welcome! If there is enough interest I will also look into the possibility of live streaming it.

I have decided to cut off the dreadlocks I have been growing since 2016 with the hope of raising funds for a worthwhile conservation charity. I am raising money to support the Cikananga Conservation Breeding Center (CCBC) in Indonesia. The CCBC is based within the Cikananga Wildlife Centre and their primary goal is the breeding and reintroduction to the wild of endangered species endemic to Indonesia. I picked CCBC because of the species that they work with in particular, as we currently hold and breed some of the endemic species at Hopwood Hall College which we are fortunate enough to educate our learners about the intricacies of conservation breeding.


This is a topic that has always been close to my heart, as I have had a keen interest in conservation efforts for my entire life and it has even influenced the career I chose to go into upon completing my studies. I have worked in Zoos and other animal collections for the past decade and have seen conservation efforts up close, I know how important they are to the survival of a great many of species.


I have chosen CCBC specifically because of the species they hold and work with in Indonesia, as I have visited that part of the world and seen first hand the damage that has been done to local wildlife populations. Currently CCBC houses Black-winged Myna (Acridotheres melanopterus), Rufous-fronted Laughingthrush (Garrulax rufifrons rufifrons and Garrulax rufifrons slamatensis), Javan Green Magpie (Cissa thalassina), Sumatran Laughingthrush (Garrulax bicolor), Javan Pied Starling (Gracupica jalla) and the Javan Warty Pig (Sus verrucosus).
