Chester Zoo offers all mums free tickets this Mother’s Day weekend

It has been announced that mums can visit Chester Zoo for free across this Mother’s Day weekend.

To mark the celebratory weekend (Saturday 18 March and Sunday 19 March), mums are invited to explore the zoo to learn more about the conservation charity’s mission to prevent the extinction of endangered species.

The initiative comes after an eventful start to the year for the zoo, which has seen several animal mums welcome new arrivals in a baby boom of rare and highly threatened species. Among the newborns are a Western chimpanzee, a tree kangaroo, a Malayan tapir and Sumatran tiger cubs.

Gemma Wright, Senior Admissions and Membership Manager at the zoo, said:

“We’ve recently experienced a huge baby boom of some of the world’s most threatened species, including the arrivals of greater one-horned rhino calf Jiya, Malayan tapir Nessa, fossa cub triplets, a baby Western chimpanzee named Jeff, the zoo’s first Goodfellow’s tree kangaroo joey and Sumatran tiger cub twins – all born as part of vital conservation breeding programmes.

“To celebrate, we want to mark the special occasion of Mother’s Day by offering mums the opportunity to visit for free, to connect with nature, see these incredible animals and their new babies for themselves, and learn all about the zoo’s efforts to prevent extinction.”

To claim free admission, mums simply need to arrive at the zoo during the weekend accompanied by a full paying adult or child, or a valid membership card.

Tickets can also be pre-booked via the zoo’s website: https://www.chesterzoo.org/plan-your-visit/

Chester Zoo is a world-leading conservation and education charity that’s committed to preventing extinction and dedicated to raising awareness of key conservation and environmental challenges.

The zoo’s 128-acre site in Chester, which is home to more than 27,000 animals and more than 500 species, is where this species-saving work is made possible.
