Huge thanks to two zoo members who have collectively raised £640 for our Orangutan Appeal with products made from their fab photos of our animals.
Talented amateur photographers, Kathryn Willett and Karen Edwards, made 2018 calendars and drink coasters respectively to raise the funds towards our £800,000 fundraising appeal to build a new separate outdoor enclosure for our four Bornean orangutans, Benji, Jorong, Jazz and Sprout.
We received £490 from Kathryn raised from sales of a calendar featuring her pictures of our four Bornean orangutans, while Karen sent us £150 raised through sales of coasters displaying her photographs of some of our exotic species.
Thank you both for your support!
Can you help us raise funds?
We’re aiming to build a new outdoor exhibit for our great apes, which will incorporate the area currently housing the wild dogs and be shared with our lar gibbons, with the work expected to start work within three years.
We’re planning to fully enclose the exhibit with a huge woven net and with a height of ten metres, it will also provide us with an opportunity to include climbing frames, hammocks and ropes for the arboreal apes.
