Twycross Zoo urges public to adopt an animal and help to protect endangered species

Twycross Zoo has battled since lock down in countless please to the government to provide vital funding to protect its zoo, home to over 500 animals, from extinction. Over the last three and a half months, with no access to the Government’s £100 million Zoo Fund, the 57-year-old zoo has had no other choice than to call on its supporters to step in who have now raised over £300,000 in online donations. An overwhelming amount, but nowhere near enough to cover the 100-acre zoo’s running costs.

From Amur Leopards to Penguins, our animals need your help to protect their future.

Here at Twycross Zoo we are facing the biggest crisis in our 57-year history and the prospect of permanently having to close our doors is very real. Although we are back open to the public, we are restricted on visitor numbers due to government guidance around Covid-19, but it’s vital that we have a successful summer in order for us to make it through the upcoming winter.

The money made through our Animal Adoptions contributes to looking after our own animals as well as endangered animals across the world.

Adopt one of your favourite animals from our online shop and help to save Twycross Zoo from extinction this Summer.
