When my dad asked me if I’d like to go the zoo with him and my grandad I jumped at the chance to spend the day with them, I am the world’s biggest daddy’s girl and an even bigger Grandads girl. Although I’m highly fussy about zoos and any place that keeps animals of any size. Luckily I live super close to Chester zoo who put the welfare of their animals and conserving animals in the wild first. Zoos are a wonderful place to get the chance to experience wild animals but never at the expense of an animals health and wellbeing.
Chester zoo opened in 1931 with one mission, to be a zoo without bars which was unheard of! And today it’s still living up to that first mission. You can read more about the zoo’s history here http://www.chesterzoo.org/global/about-us/our-history
The butterfly house has to be one of my favourite exhibits, it’s like walking through a beautiful dream where hundreds of pretty coloured butterflies fly around you and all you can do is stop admire them.
How cute is this turtle, it looks as if it’s kissing its reflection. You can check out my turtle video here https://flipagram.com/f/dKXNOkfwCL
What I was most looking forward to was the zoos new islands and boy they didn’t disappoint despite not having all the animals in yet. The islands are a beautiful addition to an already great zoo.
