[The zoo’s had a recent elephant baby boom]

Wild thing…

Emily with her leggy favourites, the giraffes

It’s been a wild summer for GTW’s marketing exec Emily, who trekked to Chester Zoo on a mission to track down the attraction’s stars of the small screen. “I’ve always wanted to go after watching the TV series The Secret Life of the Zoo,” she says. “I was lucky enough to see a baby elephant who was only a few weeks old. He was still finding his feet, and his mum was very protective of him, but he was loving playing with his older siblings.

“I also got up close to my favourite animals, the giraffes. I could have sat and watched them for hours. The park itself was extremely well kept and the staff were lovely and more than happy to answer any questions about the animals.”
