I know I know, somebody else is running the bloody London Marathon and wants my cash... but please just hear me out!
I spent the majority of last year at Chester Zoo working on Channel 4's hit series The Secret Life of the Zoo and this year I will be swapping the camera for a pair of trainers as I run and raise money for their incredible conservation program 'Act For Wildife' https://www.actforwildlife.org.uk/
As a fan of the show and animal lover in general I was so excited to have landed the dream job, never in a million years did I think I would get the chance to film with these amazing creatures. More importantly I witnessed first hand the hard work and dedication that goes on behind the scenes to keep every single animal healthy and happy as well as learning more about their groundbreaking conservation efforts across the world.
However what I didn't realise is just how close we are loosing so many of our favourite animals both at home and overseas. We are quite literally on a knife-edge and the conservation work Chester is undergoing across the world is critical to their survival.
