Community and Schools

Get your school or community group involved and help save species from extinction!

Fundraising is a great way to bring people of all ages together in a fun way whilst raising money and awareness of a good cause.  Choosing to support Chester Zoo will leave you in the knowledge that money that you raise will directly benefit our animals and the work that we do all over the world.

Go Orange for Orangutans

Orangutans in the wild need the forest to survive but in the last thirty years more than 80% of their forest home has been destroyed. Go Orange for Orangutans is our annual campaign to raise funds for orangutan conservation and shape a brighter future for this beautiful species in the wild.

Saving a species isn’t easy but taking part in Go Orange for Orangutans is a fun and simple way to help make a difference.

And we've created a whole host of resources for secondary and primary schools in both England and Wales to help your whole school get involved in Go Orange for Orangutans.
