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.


Every penny 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 donations make it possible for our teams to continue the conservation efforts worldwide, from helping re-introduce white-clawed crayfish into UK rivers, to working with communities in the Philippines to save the Critically Endangered Negros bleeding heart dove.

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.

Access to Nature Appeal

People from disadvantaged backgrounds are less likely to feel connected to nature, and to consider careers in conservation. We want to change this.

For young people in schools and community groups who face barriers to visiting the zoo,  Access to Nature provides free education sessions, free entrance to the zoo, and supports the provision of transport and food.

Your support will give children and young people across the Southwest a memory that lasts forever.

Partners and Sponsors

Business has the power to make a positive change for the planet. As a partner or sponsor, you can be part of innovative programmes, projects and events and demonstrate your commitment to conservation and sustainability.

We offer unique opportunities for businesses to develop long-term partnerships to save wildlife and help meet your ESG targets. Through regular updates and exclusive insights from Bristol Zoo Project, you can connect your staff and customers to saving wildlife together, here in the UK and around the world.
