Chester Zoo is the largest and most visited zoo in the UK. It is also an ambitious wildlife charity, funding work across the globe to fight extinction.
Act for Wildlife, the zoo’s conservation fieldwork programme, works in six regions of the globe, with local partners, to protect endangered species and habitats. Amongst its many projects include ‘Living with Tigers’, which – with the Nepali Government – helps reduce tiger poaching in Nepal. In Uganda, the zoo’s team are monitoring the Rothschild’s Giraffe population, which has dwindled to just 25-30 individuals.
It’s a privilege to work with the zoo’s fundraising team as they plan for the future, to increase support for the zoo’s extraordinary fieldwork programme.
