Bristol Zoological Society is a conservation and education charity that operates Bristol Zoo Project. Your support helps to protect nature now and into the future.

Conservation zoos have an important role in educating communities and inspiring people to connect with nature – encouraging us all to take action to save animals and habitats under threat.

Our mission is focused on saving wildlife, not alone – but together with people like you.

There are so many ways that you can get involved and help support our life-saving work here in the UK and around the world.

Please support Bristol Zoological Society today.

Fighting Extinction Appeal

Did you know at Bristol Zoo Project, 78 percent of the animals we care for are both threatened, and part of targeted conservation programmes? In the wild, these animals and their habitats are under the threat of extinction.

As a conservation charity, we work in nine countries, across four continents, to conserve species and protect habitats. Our team are doing everything they can to help secure a sustainable future for wildlife, but we can’t do it alone.

You can join our fight to save wildlife and habitats under threat by supporting our Fighting Extinction Appeal.


Every £1 donated helps to save wildlife, whether helping to care for our animals here at Bristol Zoo Project or supporting our critical conservation work around the world.

Your support makes it possible for our teams to continue saving the animals you love. From breeding Endangered red panda, to funding camera traps and rangers protecting Critically Endangered Kordofan giraffe in Cameroon, your support will help protect irreplaceable wildlife around the world.

Your support is crucial to enable us to continue this vital work – please donate today and be a part of our mission to Save Wildlife Together.
