Why we need your help

National Zoological Society of Wales Appeal

The Welsh Mountain Zoo - Bringing Conservation to Life for 58 years 

The COVID 19 crisis has caused the Zoo serious financial damage and, whilst the road ahead is long and uncertain, reopening is a great first step as we begin our recovery journey.

 

The Zoo charity’s running costs whilst we have been closed were in excess of £100,000 per month. Combine this with lost income whilst we were closed, and the crisis we now find ourselves in, is the worst the Zoo has ever faced in its 58-year history.

The future of the Zoo and our work with over 140 species is now in peril. Our help for the conservation of lemurs in Madagascar, red pandas in Nepal, snow leopards in the Himalayas and Sumatran tigers is now under threat. And here in Wales, our work to conserve red squirrels and pine martens and to rescue and rehabilitate seals, may now have to end. We still desperately need your support.  

The support we have received to date has been phenomenal. We are truly humbled by what many of you have done to help the National Zoological Society of Wales. This highlights to us how important you think the work that we do is, and how now, more than ever, we need to ensure it continues.

To those of you who have donated we say a massive thank you. In this once again difficult time, we urge you to help us by spreading the word to encourage others to give. If you haven’t already donated, please consider supporting our appeal. Whether you give a little or give a lot, the assistance you provide will help us to continue the care for our animals and the conservation projects we support.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all once again.

Your ongoing support has been, and will continue to be, so greatly received.
