Dinosaurs at large!

Dinosaurs at large!

Dinosaurs at Large! – an exhibition featuring 13 life size, life like animatronic dinosaurs - opened at Chester Zoo on July 1st 2011.

Well in advance of its opening, a full, creative and innovative PR plan was devised; designed to target all parts of the media and find ways to entice them into covering the exhibition.

We not only wanted to hit mainstream media channels and feature on TV, radio, online, in magazines and newspapers (national, regional and local); we also made a very conscious decision to try and create a ‘buzz’ and excitement around the exhibition, through our ever important social media streams. This, in turn, was designed to create a word-of-mouth campaign on a bigger scale to anything seen at the zoo before.

Paignton Zoo's Great Big Rhino Project has made crucial donations of cash to wildlife conservation on two continents. The Project is to give £60,000 to support work in Africa and South East Asia to protect rhinos in the wild. More

Collaborative research by the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, Bristol Zoological Society and the Comorian NGO Dahari has revealed the Livingstone’s fruit bat is likely to be the most endangered fruit bat in the world. 


New data released by WWF and ZSL (Zoological Society of London) today reveals that overall global vertebrate populations are on course to decline by an average of 67 per cent from 1970 levels by the end of this decade, unless urgent action is taken to reduce humanity’s impact on species and ecosystems.
