      SAVE CHESTER ZOO

Chester Zoo is the UK’s biggest and most popular charity zoo,
The conservationists have continued to prevent extinction, they have provided virtual days that have cheered up the nation, and amazing learning resources to help thousands of home-schooling families.

The government has ordered that they may have to stay closed indefinitely.

Not being able to open, despite being a huge outdoor site with all the necessary safety measures in place, is having a devastating impact on the much-loved zoo. They are heading towards a debt in excess of £24m by the end of 2020 – Which will financially cripple them! They need to raise £1.6m each month just to keep going!

Meanwhile, people are piling onto beaches and into public parks, where there is no way of controlling numbers, no way of guaranteeing people are socially distanced and no way of ensuring safety. But Chester zoo can do all of this! Outlined in this link is how they would make the zoo safe https://www.chesterzoo.org/stay-safe-new/

From this week, private gardens open up, while Chester zoos own 128 acres of gardens and 16km of pathways remain closed, and under enormous financial pressure.
To allow Chester zoo to reopen makes sense for animals and people alike!

I am starting this petition to hopefully get the attention of the UK government so they will see sense and allow Chester zoo to reopen!!
