The club and Trust will commit to a range of initiatives, including fundraising support, outreach assistance, staff volunteering, in-kind services, and event sponsorship.
Coral Jonas, Deputy CEO of DZS, said: “Dartmoor Zoo is delighted to have been chosen as a charity partner of the Plymouth Argyle Community Trust for the 2021/22 season. The Zoo is unique to many zoological conservation projects as helping people is as important to us as helping wildlife. Our Wellness Through Nature and educational programmes support adults and children to improve their mental and emotional health and physical wellbeing by inspiring and empowering them to be more connected with the natural world. We are looking forward to working with Plymouth Argyle on some new initiatives which will enable more people to benefit from spending time outdoors and engaging with nature.”
Dartmoor Zoological Society and Dash of Silver are the club’s first-ever chosen charity partners, following the development of a specific and targeted charity policy during the off-season.
Plymouth Argyle CEO, Andrew Parkinson, said: “We are pleased to be able to confirm our first-ever chosen charity partners for the 21/22 campaign, and look forward to collaborating on projects and using the power of Argyle to help create measurable impact for the charities and the projects they deliver.”
