North of England Zoological Society
That’s a long name, so we usually just say NEZS.
The NEZS is the organisation that runs Chester Zoo and our conservation campaign, Act For Wildlife.
It was formed by the zoo’s founder, George Mottershead, in 1934.
You can read more about the zoo here, and about our history here.
