Your donations can make the world of difference to the animals you love.

You can fundraise as a family, a school, with work colleagues, with friends, or take on a solo challenge! By fundraising for RZSS you can have lots of fun and will be making a huge difference to wildlife across the world.

Please get in touch if you are thinking of fundraising for us – we’d love to hear from you!

Email us at and one of the team will be delighted to help.

Whether it be bungee jumping for Budongo, busking for beavers or crocheting for critically-endangered cats, our wonderful supporters continue to do incredible things for the animals you love. Thank you!
