Our fantastic visitors, pass-holders and supporters all know that we are so much more than zoos. We have always tried to deliver the very best care to our animals and those that we try to conserve in the wild whilst at the same time providing some amazing family memories and ensuring that we genuinely connect those who visit us to the nature around them.

The Zoological Society of East Anglia relies entirely on the income made from admission tickets to Banham Zoo and Africa Alive!, annual and two year passes, income from our gift shops and catering outlets as well as animal experiences, animal sponsorships and donations. Now, the COVID-19 outbreak threatens generations of work as this support has effectively stopped.

Despite the closure of both of our zoos, our team of dedicated animal keepers continue to provide the vital care for our animals.

Your support is critical – now more than ever
