We’re all passionate about what we do; whether it’s creating a brilliant day out for you or working with endangered wildlife around the world. And we couldn’t do it without you.

We at Chester Zoo are a HUGE team of conservationists, scientists, educators, veterinary experts, botanists, wildlife managers, animal behaviourists, endocrinologists and environmental policy influencers! TOGETHER we are FIGHTING wildlife extinction. 

We are a major wildlife charity and we are making a vital contribution to tackling the global extinction crisis at a time when it’s needed most! Our zoo is vital to the future of wildlife on this planet.
