Help secure the future of Paignton Zoo

Why we need your help

You can help us to secure the future of Paignton Zoo.
We have been overwhelmed by the support that we have received so far, from so many people. Not only the direct donations to this page and by post, but all the amazing people and businesses who are fundraising on our behalf.
The money is helping us to care for our animals who eat top quality food and have specialist diets to keep them fit and healthy. Our dedicated keepers and expert vets continue to do everything they can to care for the animals to the very highest standards.
While we remain closed and do not have money coming in from normal ways such as you buying a ticket , a souvenir or even a coffee, we are extremely grateful for the donations that you are giving us. So please continue to support us by giving what you can.
We are hoping to be ready to safely re-open the zoo at the start of July 2020. However we are in need of funds now to help us prepare for the winter season, when income from guests is typically much lower.
When this is all over and we open again, you’ll be able to walk around our zoo and know that you helped us through these incredibly tough times.
Paignton Zoo is a special place, home to special animals - gorillas, rhinos, frogs, spiders, flamingos, parrots and many, many more. 
It means so much to so many people. The sights, the sounds and yes, even the smells of Paignton Zoo make it what it is – a great zoo in a great community.
Thank you so much for your donation.

The zoo is a fantastic resource for Paignton and Torbay generally. It would be very sad to see it go. Thanks to all the staff who have worked so hard to keep it going.

Can't imagine Paignton without its amazing Zoo! Being locals, my husband & I both have very fond memories of visiting with our families as children. We also spent numerous happy days visiting with our own son in his younger years. The Zoo must survive.
