Fundraise for ZSL
Fundraising for the Lions400 campaign
All funds raised from the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo Stampede event will go towards our Lions400 campaign. With just 400 Asian lions left in the wild, you will be supporting the urgent work needed to ensure the future of Asiatic lions in India and create a stunning home for ZSL London Zoo’s Asiatic lions.
Asiatic lions survive only in the Gir Forest in Western India but this tiny isolated population is vulnerable to disaster, disease and inbreeding. The lions share the Gir Forest protected area with over 15,000 people who use the land to graze cattle. Human – wildlife conflict is escalating with more than 40% of lion deaths now linked to humans. Resolving these clashes between lions and humans is the most important challenge for conservation.
Once you have registered for the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo Stampede, you can start fundraising straight away! Set up your personal fundraising page here and we will support you every step of the way! If every runner who takes parts in the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo Stampede raised just £50, this would raise a staggering £50,000 which would be an incredible achievement towards the Lions400 campaign.
