Description


*FULLY BOOKED*

Thank you to all those who have expressed interest in this event, and we can confrim this event is now fully booked. Please can guests ensure they have their tickets available to be checked on the evening, and we look forward to welcoming you soon.

In a public lecture at the University of Chester, the Zoo’s Science Director, Simon Dowell, will take the audience on a global tour of the Zoo’s international conservation work, highlighting field conservation projects on a diverse range of species.

As Science Director of Chester Zoo, Simon leads its research, education and conservation outreach work. After a career in University teaching and management he joined the Zoo’s director team in 2016. Before that he had had a long association with Chester Zoo, having previously served as a Trustee and he also helped to coordinate the Zoo’s conservation outreach work in China. Simon is also an Honorary Professor of the Biological Sciences department at the University of Chester.

Professor Andrew Lawrence, Head of the Department of Biological Sciences, said: “Chester Zoo is one of the UK’s most popular visitor attractions, but it is less well known that it is also involved in over 80 projects in approximately 30 different countries worldwide. This is in addition to the important conservation breeding programmes that are run in the Zoo itself. We are extremely pleased that Simon will be sharing his fascinating knowledge during this public lecture and I would encourage anyone with an interested in conversation – and the work of the Zoo – to come along.”

Chester Zoo in the Wild: How the Zoo is working in the field to prevent extinction of species around the world, takes place on Thursday 18th January 2018 on the University’s Parkgate Road Campus, in the Binks building, Room CBK 107.
