I completed the wildlife champions course at the zoo, where we learned fun ways of engaging people with local wildlife, and actions we can take to protect them. Since then, with the support of the zoo, the Forest City Projects C.I.C have created a unique space for wildlife. By installing ‘Supertrees’ in the centre of Chester, we aim to provide a home for a huge range of birds, insects and invertebrates.
There are so many well meaning community groups like ours, who don’t have the size of the organisation like Chester Zoo to support our mission, and help give our actions, validation. Just simply saying ‘the zoo supports our cause’ carries so much weight and influence, that it really helps facilitate almost any project the zoo put’s it’s name behind. We love working with the zoo, to help protect wildlife. Myself and my family are also members!
