The Aspinall Foundation in Action
Why supporting the Aspinall Foundation makes sense
- The Aspinall Foundation cares for hundreds of animals at their wildlife reserves in the UK, as well as the many different schemes abroad.
Your donation will bring a smile to animal lovers in the UK. You will be able to see the fruits of your donation in evidence in the parks run by the foundation, as well as those overseas. This funding is particularly important as they may not have the financial resources to help support their local wildlife.
- The Aspinall family first opened their doors to the public in 1976 to see their private collection of animals. They have since gone on to become one of the world’s leading experts in caring for endangered animals at their UK based parks. Their commitment to saving the world’s animals is second to none, and thanks to their groundbreaking work all over the world many species have already been protected from slipping into extinction.
Your donation goes to help parks found in the UK and one of the UK’s most recognised endangered animals foundations.
- The Aspinall Foundation has successfully returned western lowland gorillas and black rhinos back into protected areas of the wild.
You donation supports a foundation with a proven track record in protecting and breeding animals, and then releasing them into the wild.
