Saving Our Zoo

Chester Zoo

Prior to the pandemic, 97% of Chester Zoo’s income came from visitors. Forced closure during lockdown threatened the survival of the Zoo and the 35,000 animals in its care. It wasn’t clear when the Zoo could reopen, or at what capacity which added to financial uncertainty.

As a lover of animals with many memories at Chester Zoo I did not want to see them go. So I designed a collection of illustrative merchandise, with every purchase a donation was sent to Chester Zoo. The response to the collection was outstanding and Chester Zoo were able to reopen.
