“Twycross Zoo may soon close its gates for the last time, putting many of its animals at risk. We simply cannot let this happen!


For almost 60 years the Zoo has meant so much for so many in so many different ways. It is home to more species of monkeys and apes than any other zoo on earth. It carries out conservation in the UK and all over the world. As one of the UK’s ‘Science Zoos’, it is important for science and education.


After three months of closure with no income, but massive expenditure to feed and care for the animals, Twycross Zoo now faces a huge financial mountain to become viable once more.


How ironic if a charity dedicated to combating extinction, should itself become extinct. I am asking you now to get behind the Zoo’s fundraising campaign. Please help the Zoo and its animals survive, so that children and families can enjoy it for generations to come.”
