Connecting people to nature: Are there psychological health and wellbeing benefits to visiting zoos?
Nottingham Trent University & Chester Zoo (UK)
Being close to nature has been shown to have positive effects on human health and wellbeing. Research has also shown that green (e.g. parks and woodlands etc) and blue spaces (e.g. lakes, waterways) follow this trend. With zoos predominately being in or around urban environments but also a place for nature, this PhD will investigate if zoos globally provide more than just an entertaining day out and contribute towards positive psychological human health and wellbeing.
