At the zoo

Length of workshop 90 mins

How does Chester Zoo meet the five key principles of animal wellbeing?

Including a tour of our elephant habitat, this 90 minute workshop explores the ways in which we implement the five key principles of animal wellbeing outlined in the Secretary of States Standards for Modern Zoo Practise. We’ll do this using a variety of real zoo case studies and students will learn about our first class zoo research. Students will delve into our experience of maintaining high quality animal health, alongside the management of common zoo-related diseases.
