Support Our Charity

Support our Wildlife Charity at Marwell Zoo

Marwell’s impact depends on the generous support and enthusiasm of people like you to help finance our wildlife conservation work and enable us to secure a better future for endangered species.

Our charity is dedicated to protecting threatened wildlife under the endangered species act. Our activities take us around the world, contributing to regional or global conservation strategies, but with a particular focus on the south of England and Africa.

Please donate now, or support Marwell through one of the options below. If you’re fundraising by baking cakes, washing cars or climbing mountains – your support for our wildlife charity could make a huge difference.

Here at Marwell Zoo, we’re grateful for each of your generous donations, whether that’s as an animal conservation charity donation or a gift purchased from our Amazon wishlist. Every penny helps our wildlife charity work contribute towards a better future for these threatened species.

Support our new snow leopard habitat

At Marwell, snow leopards have been an important part of our conservation work since 1977, both at the zoo and in the wild. To continue keeping snow leopards at Marwell, we must increase the size of their habitat.
