If you are celebrating an anniversary, birthday or special occasion why not fundraise to support our conservation appeal, For People. For Wildlife. ZSL is helping people in Nepal set up sustainable ways to make a living, empowering them to build independent futures, support their families and protect the wildlife they live alongside.  We need your support to continue and expand this work.

Give in celebration to ZSL by 31 December and the UK government will double your donation up to £2million. Visit

£10 becomes £20, could become a workshop for a whole village to learn more about how to protect their local wildlife.

£20 becomes £40, could become a newly trained nature guide, earning a sustainable living and sharing their love of nature with visitors.

£50 becomes £100, could become a family starting their own sustainable livelihood, no longer reliant on the forest.

£100 becomes £200, could become a predator-proof cow fence, protecting livestock and helping people live peacefully alongside tigers.
