BATTERSEA PARK CHILDREN’S ZOO - Your zoo needs you!

Visit website

Battersea Park Children’s Zoo in London is seeking donations to their Crowdfunder page to help safeguard  their animal’s welfare and husbandry at this extraordinary time .

The zoo relies completely on visitor ticket sales and memberships to cover their overall running costs. Due to COVID-19 the zoo followed Government guidelines and closed to visitors on March 21st 2020. This coincided with the beginning of the zoo’s busiest season from Easter through to Autumn...
 
Zookeepers are essential workers and are needed to uphold the high level of care given to the animals. The committed animal keepers continue to work at the zoo everyday during the pandemic, ensuring the animals welfare is paramount. The team are going that extra mile to ensure the animals remain healthy and happy, although many of the animals do miss the visitors. The zoo’s otters for example wait at the front of their pool each morning at 10am, looking over the wall across the pathway to see if the visitors are coming in to see them.
 
Any donations would go towards maintaining the expected standard of animal welfare at the zoo and managing the associated running costs that come with the exotic species they house. Just £75 would buy enough insects to feed all of the monkeys and lemurs for one week. £150 would feed all of the animals and provide fresh bedding for one day. £500 would be wonderful and ensure a few days peace of mind during this uncertain time.

The zoo has been a cornerstone of the local and wider community for many years and would love your support to keep providing the care, conservation and sense of place that has been enjoyed for generations.
