About Us

Chester Zoo has unveiled a new exhibition that is made entirely out of rubbish and waste.

Love it for Longer which opened 11th June and runs until mid-October, features eight huge installations created by six different artists, each formed from discarded plastic rubbish, old fabrics, unwanted technology, rainwater and even animal dung.

Love it for Longer has been created by Wild Rumpus, the social enterprise that has worked with Chester Zoo on its wintertime event, The Lanterns, since 2017.

The exhibition even includes a display called 'Pootopia'

Visitors can see all sorts, from paper made from elephant poo to energy inspired by rhino dung, Pootopia will show visitors a pooey transformation right before their eyes.

You can discover different ways to use animal waste and ideas for how the smelly stuff can be useful.

The exhibition being unveiled as Chester zoo celebrates its 90th anniversary as a leading wildlife charity.

Zoo conservationists and the artists behind the sculptures say it’s the first time an exhibition of this scale, which encourages audiences to make more sustainable choices, has been staged in the UK.

Love it for Longer will champion sustainability across all facets of day-to-day life and aims to show how the world can become a waste-free zone if people work together.

It’s hoped that the art – which includes a 20-foot-long chameleon made from recycled shampoo bottles, a sculpture that turns rainwater into music and a maze created from unwanted fabric - will highlight how problematic waste streams are to the natural world and provoke conversations and inspire positive change.
