Opening Times: 10am - 6pm

Charity Heart

Twycross Zoo is a registered charity (number 501841) which exists to support conservation, education and research.


As well as being a great day out Twycross Zoo is also a charity supporting animal conservation and environmental education. As a charity all the funds raised at the zoo are invested straight back into our mission of conserving endangered species and communicating the conservation message.

At the Zoo – Modern zoos play a vital role in conserving endangered species. Funds raised are focused into improving the welfare of all our animals through enclosure design and varying enrichment programmes. A large proportion of our animals are enrolled in captive breeding programmes in order to fight against the decline in numbers of many endangered species. As well as working to conserve endangered species our nature reserve is a vital resource in protecting local wildlife with 472 native species recently recorded in the reserve. Check out our Research pages to find out more about how we fund essential research at the zoo.

In the Wild – Twycross Zoo is committed to supporting conservation projects all over the world that work with animals in the native habitats. We specialise in conservation of the four great apes and details of our projects can be found on our Conservation pages.
