Chester Zoo Primary Research

Primary Research
I decided to go to Chester Zoo to get some primary research on some of the endangered animals that I am researching, this is so that I can learn more about each of the animals, and see first hand what they are like and how they are, this is so that my publication is more informed.

Asian Elephants. Endangered.

Butterfly Garden.

Buffy-headed Capuchin.

Golden Poison Dart Frog. Endangered.

Radiated Tortoise. Critically Endangered.

Galapagos Giant Tortoise. Vulnerable.
As well as offering you information about each of the animals that are there, they also display thank you signs and name all of the people that adopt each of the animals, this is another incentive to adopt an animal, so that you can get your name on the list.


Morelet's Tree Frog. Critically Endangered.

False Tomato Frog. Least Concern.

Chimpanzee. Endangered.

Orangutan. Endangered. Gibbon.
This is another graphic sign that interacts the people who are visiting the zoo, it makes how much the population has decreased, you do this by placing your hand on the hand, and the lights show how the population had decreased through time.


Humboldt Penguins.

Sumatran Tigers. Endangered.
The tigers were hard to get photos of, as they stopped walking around and went to sleep, therefore I could only get pictures that were taken for very far away, as the tigers living area was quite large.


Cheetah. Vulnerable.

Spectacled Bear. Vulnerable.

Rhinos. Endangered.
Some of the animals also has illustrations near them, as if the information was all written in a notebook and displayed like this. Telling a story through illustrations.

Not only do Chester Zoo offer the opportunity to get involved with animals by getting so close to them, and having interactive areas such as games and informative signs. They also have signs with information on for each of the animals with the conservation status on them so that you can see what is endangered and how endangered they are, this was very helpful for me.
