We are NEZS
The North of England Zoological Society is the organisation that runs Chester Zoo and our conservation campaign, Act For Wildlife.
That’s a long name, so we usually just say NEZS. 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.
Our mission is to be a major force in conserving biodiversity worldwide.
This year our members will elect three new trustees to the Council. Find out more here.
