Onesie Walks a roaring success!
DZGs Onesie Walk has been hailed a roaring success after pulling in £5,000 for animal conservation projects.
Proceeds from our second annual walk will be split equally between DZG’s conservation projects and 21st Century Tiger, a charity which supports tigers in the wild.

The excellent event on May 2 saw 274 people don animal onesies for the 5km walk around the site.
Even Asiatic black bear, Inca, couldnt resist taking a peek at the comings and goings during the day thanks to Hollie Gordon for the picture below.
DZG Marketing Manager Andrea Hales said: “We are thrilled with the total and would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part and raised funds for such vital projects.
To be able to hand over £2,500 to support tigers in the wild and to have the same amount towards our own conservation projects is wonderful.
21st Century Tiger has also just received a £700 donation from sales of Dudley Zoos 2015 calendar. DZG handed over the impressive proceeds to the conservation charity after copies of the calendar flew off the shelves and overseas.
