We have launched Save Our Zoos event in response to the heartbreaking appeal from Chester Zoo who due to the pandemic and having their doors closed for 3 months were starting to struggle financially and revealed a £465,000 per month bill just to feed their animals.
We recognise that zoos can be controversial, but they are here and they do important conservation work to help with the threat of extinction of some of our more endangered species. Information about the work of Chester Zoo can be found here :
The medal has been signed off, and you can pre-order yours now. You can do your event whenever you want, but please note the medals are due to arrive in our offices in the 2nd week of August and so delivery of your medal won't be done until then.
