Your Zoo Needs You

Plantasia is no different to many businesses in the UK, where the Covid-19 pandemic has created many challenges. As a Zoo, our income is derived from the many visitors that come through the door each day, and experience our great offer. As we closed our doors on March 22nd, our income disappeared but our work did not stop. Our amazing specialist team are still caring for and feeding over 100 animals on site, and like all Zoos in the country we still need to pay for food, heating and veterinary care. It's for these reasons we need your help, and there are many ways you can support below:

#StillCaring

Support our Couch to Congo chalenge, and WIN WIN WIN 

Support our animal care, and WIN WIN WIN!

As a thank you, everyone who donates to our fundraising challenge will be automatically entered into our Prize Draw to WIN some amazing prizes, including a Swansea City Football Club shirt signed by the 2019/20 team, an Ospreys Rugby shirt signed by the 2019/20 team, a rugby ball signed by Rugby great James Hook, and much more.

To raise awareness for all zoos in the current climate, the team at Plantasia will complete a 3791 mile challenge. As we are a Tropical Rainforest Zoo we thought the challenge to make it to the nearest Tropical Rainforest to us would be very suitable and challenging. See you in the Congo.

The challenge will start on Wednesday 20th May, and will run for a number of days and weeks.

We're asking for donations to help support our challenge, and help cover the costs of animal care during the Covid-19 crisis. This will help ensure that Plantasia can continue its mission to help educate visitors, conserve endangered animals, and offer a great day out for our communities.

We understand that this is a difficult tiime for everyone, but your support really does mean the world to us. Any donations, big or small, will ensure we can continue to care for our animals, and continue to welcome thousands of more guests in the future.

Whilst we are still caring for our animals daily, they do miss the interaction with many visitors. To help enrich the days of each species, why not donate from our Amazon Wishlist.

 

Here you can choose toys or enrichment items for the animals. Or why not donate animal feed? There are also items to make the Zoo Keepers do their daily routines more efficiently, allowing them to spend more time with each animal.
