Mr Livingstone was in Chester to speak at the zoo-organised event, involving staff and delegates from zoos in 42 different countries, including the USA, China, Costa Rica and Rwanda.

He also visited the zoo’s new Hot Pink Flamingos exhibition – which aims to inspire people to take an interest in the impact of climate change on the world around them.
