Are you interested in studying about the hormones and genetics that can help us to save species?!
Join us every Saturday for three weeks for an exciting introduction to the science we do here at Chester Zoo, and how we apply it to solve real-world problems. Our experts will explain the fundamentals of these topics, how we collect data, and how this knowledge allows us to prevent extinction. You’ll even get the chance to try your hand at some lab work!
You will also learn about the incredible conservation projects that Chester Zoo supports around the globe, and how public engagement is a vital part of our work to prevent extinction.
