Help Zoos Victoria fight wildlife extinction

Zoos Victoria is a not-for-profit organisation committed to fighting wildlife extinction.
Your donation will help our work caring for wildlife and wild places.

Donate today …. Together we can fight wildlife extinction.

Sadly, more than 20% of Australia’s wildlife is threatened with extinction. Habitat loss, introduced species, disease and the impacts of climate change are increasing pressure on native wildlife. Zoos Victoria cares for more than 350 animal species and many of these species are listed as endangered, some critically.

Zoos Victoria is a not-for-profit organisation and aims to be the world’s leading zoo-based conservation organisation. While we receive some funding from the State Government, we rely heavily on community support for the funds required for our vital conservation work. Your donation will support:

  • our endangered species breeding and recovery programs
  • wildlife research
  • community engagement and conservation education
  • world-class animal care across our three zoos

Help us save wildlife today by making a general donation, or donating to one of the below appeals.
All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
