Conserving Science: Preventing Extinction

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2018.

Join the conservation conversation. Wander through Chester Zoo and The University of Manchester’s pop-up lab and discover how they are working together to save some of the world’s most endangered species. Sulawesi crested macaques, Asian songbirds, black rhinos and mountain zebras, they’re all featured and they all need your help. Do your bit by catching up with conservation scientists, exploring research from the field and taking part in a live link with a Kenyan lab.
