The Welsh Mountain Zoo - Bringing Conservation to Life for 57 years 

It was wonderful to welcome visitors back to the Welsh Mountain Zoo – National Zoo of Wales on 13th July 2020. The 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 were closed were over £118,000 per month. Combine this with lost income whilst we were closed of over £700,000 and the crisis we now find ourselves in is the worst the Zoo has ever faced in its 57-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. You can continue 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.

I work in another zoo. While you have to close for the firebreaker I felt I had to show my support to the staff and especially the animals.

I truly hope your zoo recovers from this awful situation. I love coming here, I live in Wirral and have visited every year with my son for numerous years. Stay strong, sending lots of love and the bestest of wishes. X

I was really impressed with the Welsh Mountain Zoo when visiting last year. My favourite animals were the Snow Leopards
