Leave a gift in your will

We are very proud of what we do here. It’s a tough job and it’s not cheap but we all believe in it, as do the people who have helped us with gifts and donations to the project over the years.

Leaving the charity a gift in your will is one of those ways that you can make a difference. We have made some key improvements (monkey enclosure, lion house improvements, bear enclosure developments, amongst many other important projects) thanks to people’s generosity, and their legacy is a lasting contribution to the work we do in conservation, education and wellbeing through nature.

We are grateful for any size gift – from contributing to the animal enrichment, to helping us to bring our buildings up to date – every gift goes towards the same vision: “To inspire and empower people to achieve a future in which no species faces extinction through human action”.

Leaving a gift is easy, just add it to your will.


If you, or one of your family or friends would like to be a part of the work we are doing please call us on 01752 837645 or email zoobase@dartmoorzoo.co.uk.
In advance, thank you.
