WATCH: Zoology students saving animals in Gambia

Zoology students from the University of Cumbria have been thrown in at the deep end - by learning conservation techniques in Gambia.

Members of the group have come face-to-face with Green Mamba snakes and Temminck's Red Colobus monkeys, amongst other animals.

As well as learning, they carry out vital research to help endangered species, and document their work by filming much of it - you can see some of that footage in the video below.
