Learn at Chester Zoo - Endocrinology
Science at Chester Zoo

An introduction to the endocrinology work we do at the lab here at Chester Zoo.

Endocrinology is the study of hormones and can tell us a lot about our animals. Studying the hormones of animals lets us know about how an animal is feeling or even if its pregnant. Through studying endocrinology we're able to constantly assess our animals' needs.

We're very lucky to have our very own endocrinology lab on site at Chester Zoo so get sent samples from all over the world!
