A huge thank you to our fundraising superstars!

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 £4million in revenue 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.

🌟Jackson (5) is having loads of fun while raising funds for Marwell. He is hopping around the block each day for 8 days! Support him here.

🌟 Inspirational 'Tiger Ted' is walking a tremendous 77 miles before his 7th birthday! He has so far blown his fundraising goal out of the park with an astonishing amount of more than £5,559! Support Teddy here.

🌟 Elizabeth and Faith are only six years old but are cycling an astonishing 100km in February to raise money for Marwell! They’ve so far raised a whopping £2,716... so have no set a March target of 150km – wow! Check out their JustGiving page to sponsor their brilliant bike ride.

🌟 Enola is daring to do an incredible six-hour danceathon to raise funds for Marwell! To help her get to her £250 target you can donate here.

🌟 Five-year-old Alfie is doing his “good choices” bike ride. He has exceeded his initial target of £500 and has now raised it to £2,000! He intends to cycle 1.6km a day up until Easter Sunday, which equates to an impressive total of 71km! Check out his justgiving page here.

🌟 Aimee, who is a big fan of meerkats, has been running a marathon for Marwell. She has run over 28km during her first five runs and managed to raise a remarkable £423 so far. To sponsor Aimee donate here.

🌟 Kelly V has managed to raise an extraordinary amount of more than £2,300 after appealing to the residents of Hampshire and surrounding areas. Thank you!

🌟 Frank (FMead Photography) is raffling off a canvas of one of his stunning photos of our late tiger Milla in support of the zoo. Each raffle ticket is £2 and the draw will be announced on 20 May 2021 at 7pm, so there’s plenty of time to get a few entries in! Support Frank here.

🌟 Finn and Lucy are walking a truly spectacular 100 miles by 31st March and you can help them smash their fundraising target here.

🌟 Laura and her family walked a whopping 50km over half term last week to raise more than £120!

🌟Fitness instructor Helen hosted a day of virtual dance fitness activities on Saturday 20th February!
🌟Edward (12), George (10) and Clemency (8) did an amazing set of ‘Lockdown Challenges’. From running a marathon around their house, to rowing from Dover to Calais on their dad’s rowing machine, they had their work cut out!
