George Mottershead started Chester Zoo by collecting different animals such as lizards, insects and exotic plants. His love for animals came from visiting Belle Vue Zoo as a young boy.
Mottershead was a determined man who did not let his War injury keep him limited. As time passed, his love for collecting animals grew as well, which lead him to search for a home for his “zoo”. He bought land in the suburb of Chester for £3,500, which consisted of a house and 9 acres of land.
His love for animals continued to grow and so did Chester Zoo. It was officially opened to the public in 1931 and it lasts through the Second World Way.
