Where do we start? With our 12,000 animals, in 125 acres of award-winning zoological gardens? With the 1.4 million people who come to visit every year? Or with the many conservation projects we’re involved with, at home and abroad?
The fact is, these are all vital parts of what makes Chester Zoo one of the world’s top zoos, and the UK’s number one wildlife attraction. You can read more in this message from Mark Pilgrim, our Director General.
