Another trip to Chester zoo

Hello!

On Friday me and my boyfriend spent that day at Chester zoo. At uni I live only a 10 minute bus ride from the zoo and my course entitles me to a free annual pass which is super handy. It was a little bit of a chilly day which meant there wasn't too many visitors there and I didn't have to push through crowds to get pictures. I couldn't help but notice the amount of parents that take their child to the zoo yet fail to educate them when it comes to the animals! One parent pointed to a Tropical Tree Shrew in it's enclosure and told her child to 'look at the squirrel' when the species information was right in front of her! I really think people would have a greater understanding on wild animals and endangered species if they just took the time to read information signs and educated themselves a little rather than looking at the animal and moving on to the next enclosure. I love going to the zoo and watching each animal for a few minutes, looking at it's behaviours and the way it moves. Anyway, enough of my rambles, he's some pictures from the day!

  1. aw the Red Panda is so cute! I always just assumed it was some kinda of koala bear.............. and you're right about parents not educating their children properly - even the school curriculum fails!

  3. I'm so jealous that you get to have a free pass! I'd kill for one of those, and to be within a 10 minute trip of a zoo!

    I was supposed to be going to West Wales' Manor Park tomorrow but the weather is going to be awful, I will have to look at your amazing photos instead. That lion is amazing!

  4. I haven't been to a zoo in a while! Chester is my nearest when I'm at home. It saddens me when children aren't encouraged to learn about wildlife.
