Ahead of the launch of our Conservation Training Academy course An Introduction to Zoo and Wildlife Endocrinology, we speak to the event’s co-host and conservation expert Dr Veronica (Ronnie) Cowl to find out more about her career highlights.
As Reproductive Biology Coordinator, we find out more about her role in our mission to prevent extinction, and how she ended up working among Chester Zoo’s extraordinary team of Conservation Scientists
With her unique experience and insight, she shares her advice to budding conservationists looking to pursue a career in the field of biology…
Congratulations to our newly trained Youth Champion Volunteers and Support Volunteers!
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…
