Support Us

Did you know that Twycross Zoo is a conservation charity fighting to save endangered species? With your help we can help wild animals in peril.

Wild animals across the globe are threatened by habitat loss, climate change, human-animal conflict, hunting and pollution. We already invest all our income into our mission to protect endangered species and educate the public about the threats they face – but with your support we can do even more.

Leading experts in great ape conservation have predicted that without significant action great apes will be extinct in the wild in the next 20 years. We are the only zoo in the UK to provide a safe haven for all four of the great apes, our closest relatives- gorillas, orang-utans, chimpanzees and bonobos.

Your donation will help to conserve some of the most endangered species on the planet- through caring for our animals, taking part in international breeding programmes and supporting conservation and welfare projects around the globe. With your help we can also increase understanding about our animals and their plight in the wild through our award winning education programme.

Currently around 60,000 people visit the Zoo as part of an educational field trip each year and 25,000 of those attend a formal taught program; 7000 through specialist Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)-based programs.

See our Conservation and Education pages to find out more about the great work you will be supporting.

Together, we can protect wildlife in danger. Thank you.
