Give to Wildlife at Christmas

Tis’ the season to be giving! Whether you celebrate Hanukah, Christmas, Yule or National Cupcake Day we often gain a greater sense wellbeing from giving than receiving…

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

One donation can transform the future for both people and wildlife.

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

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

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

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