Corporate Membership

ZSL Corporate Membership is a perfect way to show your commitment to sustainability, conservation and education whilst providing unforgettable experiences for your employees. 

Our two world-class zoos, ZSL London Zoo and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, provide an inspirational platform for corporate employees to experience the wonder of nature first hand. With access to over 850 species of wild animals, world-leading conservationists and scientists, and exclusive out-of-hours experiences, ZSL Corporate Membership is one of a kind.

Your money will go directly to supporting ZSL’s vital work, protecting wild animals and their habitats.

Covid-19 update

Our Corporate Partners and Members are incredibly important to us and we understand you will all be facing unprecedented changes in your lives just as we are here at ZSL. In-line with Government advice and to help reduce the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19) we have had to close our zoos for the foreseeable future but we are using our expertise in science, conservation and policy to contribute to the global fights against coronavirus and the threat of future pandemics.

With the closures preventing employee visits and corporate volunteering, the Corporate Partnerships team are looking at new and creative ways of keeping you engaged, at a time when direct social contact has never been more limited. As we work on developing online content, we would love to share with you some resources we already have and believe you will enjoy from the comfort of your own home:

 

Reading Corner

  • Read extracts from ZSL's award-winning members' magazine, WildAbout here. There are some fascinating articles to delve into on your coffee break, including a behind the scenes look at being Head Vet at Whipsnade, a feature on tagging a rhino and 10 things you didn’t know about parrots!

  • Our regular blogs bring you extraordinary animal facts and exclusive access to the world's oldest scientific zoo here.

  • Discover what our experts at ZSL’s Institute of Zoology have to say about the pandemic here

 

Visit our video channels

  • On our video channel the animals, at ZSL London and Whipsnade Zoos, come alive on the web. We regularly post videos showing you what's new and taking you on exclusive behind the scenes tours, as well as showing you all about our conservation and science work. Click the link to be part of the action.

Adopt an animal

By adopting an animal with ZSL you are adopting the species at ZSL London and Whipsnade Zoo and helping to protect those animals in the wild. With 8 animal species to choose from, animal adoption makes a lovely gift for yourself or a loved one. Unfortunately, our warehouse and online shop are closed at the moment but you can visit our adoption page here for some inspiration and then make your commitment when we reopen, our animals will thank you for it!

Share the love

If you would like to share any memories, photos or stories from your corporate volunteering or behind the scenes experiences with ZSL drop Sarah an email at sarah.miller@zsl.org – she’d love to hear from you!

 

Matched giving

Many companies support employee fundraising and charitable giving by matching donations. This is a great way to maximise your fundraising efforts and if this perk is available to you, we’d love to encourage you to consider making ZSL a beneficiary! Sometimes matched giving can apply to events where you have given your time rather than cash, do find out what incentives are available to you and let us know if you have any questions. We’re working hard for a world where wildlife thrives and any additional support we can get will make a difference in our vital conservation work around the world. Thank you for thinking of us!

 

We hope these links provide you with some easy ways to connect to our work and inspire hope for the future in these uncertain times. The income from our corporate memberships contribute to our vital science and conservation work and we truly are grateful for your support. Wherever you are, we truly hope that you and yours stay safe and well and we look forward to welcoming you back on-site in the near future.

 

Yours in health and gratitude,

The Corporate Partnerships team
