Over the past couple of months everything has changed and as of the start of June Chester Zoo were unable to open and unable to fund the Zoo as normal. They gave a statement and set up a just giving page so we created a print to sell and donate 70% of all profits made to help. Even now they are able to open, they still need all of the help they and the animals can get. We know there’s a lot of controversy when it comes to Zoos and we understand that animals in captivity is not how they should live however, endangered animals, rescued animals, animals born into captivity that wouldn’t survive in the wild, safety from poachers; this is all prevented within Chester Zoo and all the hard work every member of the team put into caring for the animals, making sure the Zoo is clean and running to the best of it’s ability. Chester Zoo go above and beyond for their animals so any support they can get would be amazing!
We both grew up in Chester and Chester Zoo has been a massive part of our lives, it is also a huge part of the city we live in. The conservation work that they do is incredible and it would be a massive shame if it all had to come to an end.
We’d like to thank everybody so far who has purchased the “Save Our Zoo” print the money has been donated to their ‘JustGiving’ page and we are continuing to raise money with this print with a couple of alterations to fit the situation- It will now say “Save Chester Zoo” instead. 70% of all profits will still be being donated and if you’d just like to donate yourself visit https://www.justgiving.com/chesterzoo
Thank you all so much for your support so far
