Imagine an ice cap without penguins…
Imagine a rainforest without orang utans…
Imagine a world without elephants…
Animals and plants are disappearing from the Earth at an alarming rate. At the present rate of extinction, over 10,000 species could disappear by the year 2050, FOREVER.
We work to prevent the extinction of threatened species both in the UK and overseas. Our conservation projects aim to save animals and plants in the wild and we are also involved in co-ordinated breeding programmes.
Over the years we have been fortunate to receive some wonderful gifts. Gifts in wills and donations help us to save species from extinction. Marie Le Fevre’s gift of £½ million helped us to build our Ape Centre home to critically endangered orang utans and lowland gorillas. An anonymous donor recently gave us £36,000 that is helping in the breeding of the threatened Rothschild giraffe.
We are also very grateful to receive smaller donations which enable us to plant new trees, buy new machinery and provide play items for children and animals alike.
Gifts of any size make a real difference to our vital conservation and education work we do, so join us today.
Together we can make a difference.
