Paignton Zoo supports several campaigns to raise awareness of conservation issues that are threatening wildlife.
We are working hard to protect wildlife and with your support we can make a difference. Please see the panels below to find out which conservation campaigns we are supporting and how you can help.
In response to the widespread loss of biodiversity through urbanisation, agriculture and development, the ‘Let it Grow’ campaign aims to draw on the expertise of Zoo staff to work with local communities, helping nature recover by:
- Raising awareness of the importance of biodiversity
- Encouraging communities and individuals to provide spaces (however small!) for native species to grow
- Measuring biodiversity in selected areas
BIAZA ‘Grab that Gap’
The ‘Grab the Gap’ campaign encourages all member organisations to ‘grab’ areas of unused space within their zoo or aquarium sites, and plant wildflowers throughout March 2016, in order to create mini-meadows for the summer. These areas will then be assessed for biodiversity through a programme of BioBlitz activities run by Zoo staff, with volunteers and visitors.
