    Just to give you peace of mind about visiting the zoo and the SEA LIFE centre, Chessington World of Adventures Resort and Merlin take the responsibility of the animals and sealife in their care very seriously. The resort is involved with many national and international breeding programmes for rare and endangered species and they even have a conservation fund that supports invaluable conservation work and education within the zoo, how great is that??
