Tiger Teds Last Mile At Marwell Zoo Fundraising

We have been overwhelmed by your incredible support

Your fantastic fundraising efforts are helping us to ensure we can carry out our vital conservation work and continue to offer the best care to our animals. While the zoo is closed, our daily costs remain incredibly high as the responsibility of looking after our animals to the highest standard does not change. Since March 2020, we’ve lost more than £6.8million due to the pandemic and we’re facing our toughest challenge in our nearly 50-year history.Feeling inspired? You can donate or start your own fundraiser via our JustGiving page by clicking the orange ‘Start Fundraising’ button.
