Field trip to Ecuador inspires Chessington staff

Staff from Chessington World of Adventures (CWA) returned to the UK inspired by a field trip to Ecuador where they saw for themselves how donations from Chessington Conservation Fund (CCF) are benefiting conservation. Back in Britain, Lisa Britton, Primate Supervisor at Chessington, highlighted the importance of CCF’s support and the value of the field trip to southern Ecuador: “This area is considered one of the world’s highest biodiversity priorities. It truly made me proud that Chessington World of Adventures Resort’s support for World Land Trust through CCF is used so effectively.”
