EVEN A SMALL DONATION CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN THE CARE AND PROTECTION OF OUR ANIMALS HERE AT THE ZOO AND ACROSS THE WORLD

As a not for profit organisation, we rely on your generous support to continue our vital science and conservation work to ensure animals survive and thrive.

Please join us in our mission to prevent extinction and protecting endangered wildlife and habitats both here in the UK and around the world.

Help us prevent extinction by adding a donation of 10% .

MAKE YOUR DONATION EVEN BIGGER WITH NO EXTRA COST TO YOU

We can claim Gift Aid on your booking, which means the government will give us an extra 25p on top of every £1 you spend.

It won’t cost you anything but will mean the world to us. All you need to do is tick the box.
