The Secret Life of the Zoo

It's not just about the 21,000 extraordinary animals but also the 700 people hard at work here, doing everything we can to keep this HUGE, complicated, wonderful place going...

...from looking after the animals to discovering new ways to do conservation and giving our guests an inspirational day out.

We work hard because we love animals, we care about nature, we love Chester Zoo and we want to be the BEST conservation charity in the world!
