Did you know that Chester Zoo has a science team?
Our scientists work in conjunction with our animal teams and EAZA (European Association of Zoos and Aquaria) in ensuring the correct breeding and management decisions are made for each species. This introductory one-day course is designed for people looking to gain knowledge and skills in conservation physiology. We will take you through how our endocrinology lab works, how we collect data and how this data is then utilised. You will have time to develop your own analytical skills, listen to our specialist case studies and work through scenarios to develop your own recommendations.
