Support conservation during the Covid-19 crisis


Our Conservation team are taking action to support endangered species across the globe. You can support the fight to protect the planet’s rich biodiversity by making a donation. From the Scottish wildcat to the Himalayan wolf, your gift could make the world of difference for endangered species. Please support crucial conservation work today, and together we can save the world’s wildlife. Thank you.

The RZSS Conservation Department works on 23 conservation projects in the wild both here in the UK and all over the world. From assisting threatened species on their journey back to the wild, to bringing in our wild experts to help with genetic management and veterinary health, to protecting wild places by supporting amazing local conservation organisations, we are out there doing conservation work where it's needed most. With both RZSS' zoos currently closed due to COVID-19, the money we normally receive from visitor admissions is not currently available, but you can help!
