Your support is needed

Whilst we are temporarily closed due to COVID-19, our zoo keepers are caring for all of our 87 species of our 400+ animals, every single day, with the same love, care and dedication they deserve. No one knows how long this closure will last, and that poses a big challenge for us.

This year more than ever, Dartmoor Zoo needs your support. Since closing our doors in March, the zoo has lost hundreds of thousands of pounds in critical funds. We have been heartened by the generosity of the public so far but along with others, we need more.

Even after making considerable cuts, we still need to raise £45,000 a month to help us care for our animals and give them everything they need. Therefore, our weekly fundraising target is £11,500.

Dartmoor Zoo depends on income from fundraising events and admissions from our visitors, so the animals now rely solely on your generosity.

Although you cannot see them, you can still help them. Your donation today will support our important work, helping people helping wildlife, here at our zoo and around the world.

We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone, however, if you are able to make a financial contribution of any size, please do what you can to support us.

Together, we can overcome this challenge, and we cannot wait until we are able to  welcome you back.

  1. I have just read that zoos can open on the 15 June. Due to my husband and I shielding and unable to visit your zoo, we have made a donation to still support you and the wonderful animals.

    I do hope to visit very soon.

    1. Thank you for your kind donation. As soon as we have a re-opening date will announce this to the public.

  2. I love the movie We Bought a Zoo and would love to see Dartmoor someday. I live in the USA and just donated to the zoo. Thank you for all that you do for the animals.
