I’m raising funds to help support Linton Zoo Conservation park, a small zoo with a big personality.
Like many businesses all around the world we have had to close our gates to visitors in the run up to what should be one of our busiest times of the year.
We rely on the income we take from admissions and annual memberships (minus the 20% VAT of course), we do not receive any grants or supplementary income from anywhere elsewhere, unlike some of the larger zoos.
Please be assured that despite the loss of income our animals will remain well fed and cared for by our dedicated zookeepers, vets and other essential zoo staff - just because we are closed does not mean that the work stops!
It has always been our aim to create a place where endangered creatures could be brought to live safely and peacefully and where they could be happy, contented and breed. We have been rewarded by many native species, some of which have not been seen in the area for many years like red kite and bee orchid, also choosing to make this their home.
We now have a large collection of wildlife ranging from Madagascar tenrecs and snakes through giant tortoises, hornbills, toucans, parrots, owls and pheasants to beautiful snow leopards, magnificent Amur tiger, African lions, Hartmann Mountain zebra and Brazilian tapir. Each year new species are brought in, many of them being part of an international captive breeding programme, so the collection's constantly on the increase.
However, the cost of caring for these magnificent animals is huge. If you are able to help contribute towards the care of the animals, no matter how big or small of a donation you could make, we would be enormously grateful.
Thank you in advance for your support at this difficult time for everyone.
