Safari in the City Gala

In summer 2018, ZSL presented its fifth gala, a truly unique fundraising dinner like no other. While guests enjoyed a sunset tour by rickshaw, fine dining and entertainment, together we raised vital funds to tackle the ever-growing threat of illegal wildlife trade.
Thanks to the generous donations of Safari in the City guests, ZSL is working across the globe to protect endangered animals from illegal wildlife trade.

Since 2017 gala, ZSL had worked with communities across Africa and Asia, empowering them to take action against illegal wildlife trade.
We’ve acted as an advisor to the UK government to support the closure of our domestic ivory market.
We’re helping to protect vital rhino habitats and we're working in China to reduce the demand for pangolins - just a glimpse into our fight against illegal wildlife trade, which we couldn't do without your support.
But as illegal wildlife trade reaches unprecedented levels, time continues to run out for some of the world’s most iconic species:
  • Every year at least 120 tigers are killed for their body parts.

  • Every day 60 elephants are killed for the ivory trade.

  • Every 5 minutes at least one pangolin is killed for their meat and medicines.

Attendant to Safari in the City, joined us in protecting these precious animals.
Together we can #stoptheclock on illegal wildlife trade for good.
This exclusive experience included:
  • A tour around ZSL London Zoo after hours while savouring cocktails and canapés as the sun sets.

  • The opportunity to hear from our conservation experts.

  • An exceptional three-course sit down dinner with drinks.

  • The chance to bid on unique prizes and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, including visits to our overseas projects.
