Chester Zoo Wildlife Champions

by Hannah Brooks Chester Zoo,

Chester Zoo in collaboration with partners has recently launched the Nature Recovery Network. A key aspect of this project is to train local Wildlife Champions in Chester to upskill and empower community leaders to take action to improve their local greenspace for wildlife and for people, involving their local community in the process. We’ve just announced the dates for our first course which will start on 20th November, and there will be 5 more courses running in 2022. We would love to hear from anyone who would like to participate either in the first course or in 2022. We’ve previously delivered this training with friends of groups, teachers, youth group leaders, care home workers and we want to support a whole range of different audiences to engage, all you need is a green space to improve and a community to engage in the process. The Green Recovery Challenge Funding is enabling us to deliver this training for free and to provide ongoing support for the trained Wildlife Champions. Details for getting in touch are in the attached flyer and it’s here on our website - chrome-extension://efaidnbmnnnibpcajpcglclefindmkaj/viewer.html?pdfurl=https%3A%2F%2Fcdn.chesterzoo.org%2Fsites%2F3%2F2021%2F11%2Fwildlife-champions-flyer-2021-final_removed.pdf&clen=10771439
