Wow! Well then Codebreakers, you’ve done it! You’ve made it to the final day of the challenge!
Hi there explorers! You’ve done SO well so far…it’s pretty exhausting all this travelling around, but it’s been AMAZING to see so many different species, hasn’t it?
Hope you managed to get a good night sleep. Did you dream in code and symbols again? It feels like we’re getting close to cracking the code now!
How’s it going codebreakers? Hope you enjoyed feasting on some yummy delights yesterday. Those recipes were sooooo tasty!
Have you been dreaming about those mysterious symbols as well?!
Perhaps it’s some sort of pledge, but there must be more to find! We’ll try to find some more today.
Good morning fellow rainforest explorers, Hope you slept well. We’re still a bit baffled about that strange note we found yesterday. Do you know what it might mean?
Now, let’s see, where are we today? It’s time to explore this new habitat to see where we’ve ended up this time!
Hello explorers! Welcome! We’re SOOOOO pleased you could join us on our Around the World in 5 Rainforests adventure!
IMPORTANT: PLAY VIDEO
So, you’ve worked hard all half term?
Now it’s time to PLAY!
We think play is REALLY important at the zoo and we especially like to play animal related games. We thought you might also like to try a few with your friends and family to understand more about animals and conservation but mainly just to have FUN!
The zoo may be closed but that hasn’t stopped our work with schools. Over the lockdown period we have engaged with thousands of schools and pupils via our virtual workshops , our live virtual zoo days and with our free online resources. It’s been brilliant but we wanted to know if there was more that we could do.
We are very lucky here at Chester Zoo to work in partnership with a panel of education experts (Curriculum Advisory Panel) who help to direct our work making it as usable and relevant as possible for schools. With their advice we are really excited to announce our latest offering…
A great place to take your students to explore a South East Asian forest habitat in the middle of Chester Zoo! With free flying birds, primates, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and amazing plants, there’s so much to see and learn about.
We’ve been working with the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation (MWF) to prevent the extinction of endemic species on Mauritius and Rodrigues for many years. An important part of this work is supporting the development of education programmes that encourage people to value and protect the species we’re working together to save.
In 2015, Islands opened to the public. A £40 million project, 60,000 square meters, orangutans, tigers, crocodiles and countless unique plants, it was designed to be our first geographically themed immersive environment, taking visitors on a journey across six South East Asian islands.
With Monsoon Forest at the heart, the jewel in the crown, and also the UK’s largest indoor zoo habitat, this immersive habitat was an exercise in what progressive zoos should strive for.
But at the end of 2018, Monsoon Forest fell victim to a fire, causing a lot of damage to this amazing exhibition. What followed has been to a two-year long project to re-imagine the space, re-telling the stories that first captivated our visitors’ imaginations.
