Chester Zoo


Join us for a fun-filled week of exploring the various conservation careers that are available at the zoo. From animals, plants, and veterinary roles to education and field programmes. There’s even the creative side of signage, marketing and social media!

During the week, our young conservationists will be immersed into the world of Chester Zoo with a combination of group activities, workshops, and theory sessions. This is an fantastic opportunity for young people to get together, gain experience and learn new skills from our amazing team of experts.

This holiday course has been designed for secondary school students years 10-12 and does not include any hands-on contact with any of the animals in the zoo, or behind-the-scenes access to any keeper areas.
