Help the animals of Colchester Zoo

Sadly zoos all over the world are suffering from the closures due to covid-19.

Many, if not most, are now on their death bed after being closed for such a long period of time without any income and it is very likely there will be casualties. 

For Colchester Zoo, the loss of income has run into millions because of the closure but the real figure will only be known next year if they survive or fail. 

Most zoos, including Colchester are involved in conservation throughout the world, many organisations rely on their help and funding. Colchester Zoo funds a Private Nature Reserve in South Africa named UmPhafa.  Without vital conservation funding their work with the local communities and animal populations will undoubtedly suffer.
Colchester Zoo knows there is an army of dedicated supporters from all over the country who will be in attendance when the zoo re-opens, so a few busy days are expected however the numbers will be far from what has been enjoyed in the past with a limited number of visitors permitted to enter the zoo per day to enable social distancing.

Please help me raise some much-needed money for Colchester Zoo.  Thank you so much for your generosity
