Celebrating Wildlife Connections - Salvation Army

  • Wildlife Connections

As part of our Wildlife Connections campaign we've been running a series of workshops, led by experts from Chester Zoo, to train up Wildlife Champions from a variety of community groups to give local wildlife a helping hand.

As part of our Wildlife Connections project we’ve been working closely with a number of different community groups across Chester, Flintshire, Cheshire and the Wirral; inviting them to attend a series of free workshops led by experts from the zoo and our conservation partners. The workshops aim to help them develop their skills and provide them with the know-how in a number of different areas, including: planting for wildlife, what they can do to help birds, toads and hedgehogs, wildlife recording and activities they can do with their group to help wildlife. 

We caught up with Wildlife Champions, The Salvation Army in Ellesmere Port, about the actions they've taken after doing the Wildlife Champions course at Chester Zoo:
