Chester Zoo Learning Centre


From endocrine to studbooks, hormones and genetics play a huge part in the maintaining the best welfare of our animals.

Join us over three days for an exciting introduction into some of the ins and outs of hormones and genetics, and how they are used in conservation research. Our science team will be on hand to demonstrate the science used both across the globe in our field programme sites, and right here at the zoo. This is perfect for those wanting an insight into science, conservation and research.
