All of our indoor habitats are currently closed in line with the Government’s Tier 4 restrictions, but many of our 35,000 animals can be seen outside.

Conservation is at the heart of everything we do at Chester Zoo! 

Here you will be able to get closer to one of our zoo conservation breeding programmes and discover more about the work we do behind the scenes.  This building was designed especially with parrot conservation and breeding as a high priority. Here you will find the Ecuador Amazon parrot and Philippine cockatoo – two endangered species that are fighting for survival in the wild.
The majority of this habitat is behind the scenes to ensure the parrots have the privacy they need to behave naturally and reproduce.
