As a conservation and education charity, we have been overwhelmed by the support that we have received over the past year, from so many people.

The funds raised are helping us to continue to care for our animals and carry on our vital work for wildlife. Our dedicated keepers and expert vets work daily to do everything they can to care for the animals to the very highest standards.


Being closed not just once but twice in 2020, and now again in 2021 as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic has led to a significant loss of income to our charity. We are in vital need of funds now to help us get through this time.

So please, please continue to support us by giving what you can. 

You can also support us by:

  • Donating via text - to donate £10, simply text PZOO to 70085
    Text will cost £10 plus one standard network message rate and come straight to us. You’ll be opting in to hear more about our work and fundraising via telephone and SMS. If you’d like to give £10 but do not wish to receive marketing communications, text PZOONOINFO 10 to 70085.
  • Purchasing an animal adoption
    This is a lovely gift for any animal lover and a great way of showing your support.
  • Becoming an Annual Pass holder
    Your new Pass will start for 12 months on the date that we're safely able to re-open.
  • Treating an animal to an item off our Amazon Wishlist
    Browse through the items and add something to your basket before checking out, just like with normal orders!


Did you know that you can also shop on Amazon and donate to our charity at no extra cost to you?      

Simply click here or through the box below and then shop as normal.
Both Paignton Zoo and Newquay Zoo are listed on Amazon under 'South West Environmental Parks', which is the name of our parent charity.


And if you visit us when we can re-open, you will be able to walk around our zoo and know that you have helped us through these incredibly challenging times.

Paignton Zoo is a special place, home to special animals - gorillas, rhinos, giraffes, big cats, lemurs and many, many more. It means so much to so many people. The sights, the sounds and yes, even the smells of Paignton Zoo make it what it is – a great zoo in a great community!

                                                  We thank you so much for your support and any donations.
