Chester Exhibition to Honour British Wildlife

Visitors arriving at beloved northwest attraction Chester Zoo will soon get a chance to be the first people to experience the UK’s only 360°exhibition highlighting the best that British wildlife can offer.

Opening in December, the brand-new exhibition is dubbed “Native: The Incredible World of British Wildlife”. It will include 360° digital displays that will let visitors journey throughout the majestic grasslands and woodlands of the British Isles, as well as its breathtaking coastlines.

Featuring stunning footage of British wildlife like seals, dolphins, puffins, beavers, Scottish wildcats and many more creatures, the immersive experience includes stories caught on camera by expert filmmakers behind hit wildlife documentaries on terrestrial channels like ITV and BBC.

The all-new exhibition also includes an “interactive discovery area” that enables visitors to view a totally live wildlife feed transmitted directly from Chester Zoo’s nature reserve. The area also teaches teams how to establish a camera trap of their own and to monitor and protect UK species from their residences using the latest technology.

Chester Zoo’s Regional Field Programme Manager for the UK, Helen Bradshaw, commented that the exhibition will shine a much-needed spotlight on the plight of British wildlife:

“Britain is one of the world’s most nature-depleted nations and, as a wildlife conservation charity, we want to create a future where nature thrives and that starts right here at home in the UK.”

The brand-new British Wildlife exhibition will be officially revealed to the public on Monday, December 18 and is included free with the price of a standard zoo admission.
