Sustainability at Chester Zoo

Who, what & why?

Chester Zoo could produce a ton of waste a day, but can recycle / reuse 97% of that. This workshop focuses on how Chester Zoo acts sustainably, from waste to energy to what we buy and our buildings. Students will also learn what impact waste has on our environment and how by acting today we can save tomorrow.
