Colchester Zoo is so much more than what some may say is ‘a zoo’ – our mission is to protect and care for wildlife and their habitats. Everything we do is with conservation in mind, animals are our passion and priority. We strive to raise awareness of the importance of caring for the amazing species we share our beautiful world with.

Colchester Zoo and it’s charity, Action for the Wild, rely on the income from annual memberships, ticket sales, secondary spend in our retail and catering outlets as well as animal experiences, adoptions and donations.

The usual daily running costs of the zoo is £25,479 plus veterinary care bills and other unexpected expenses. Despite the zoo closure, our Animal Care Team are vital to continue to deliver the highest level of care to all of our animals and the upkeep of the park which they call home. Together we will ensure that the care of our animals is not compromised during this crisis we are all facing and our critical purpose continues.

Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of Colchester Zoo Action for the Wild and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
