We reopened in April 2021 after another prolonged lockdown

During the last 12 months, we were closed for seven, which forced further financial strains on our charity, as animal care costs continued as normal.

As a not-for-profit charity, which relies on ticket sales, we are hoping the public will continue to support us through these uncertain times by considering making a donation to our Justgiving appeal.

Every donation makes a real difference and will be gratefully received.

Thank you in advance for your support and we hope to welcome you to Dudley Zoo and Castle soon!
