The Challenge

Chester Zoo’s website is the main point of information for visitors to the zoo with an eCommerce solution for purchasing tickets and memberships. The site also hosts a large volume of data intensive learning resources to help improve understanding of conservation and wildlife.

Our website is the main source of information for our visitors; at peak times we get around 20,000 users a day using it to book tickets, looking up feeding times for the animals, finding out how to get here and looking up general information about the zoo.
