*Thank you everyone who donated to this fundraising page since the beginning of the pandemic. The total raised during the pandemic from 2020 until February 2022 was £63,028.

We have now renamed this fundraising appeal to raise funds to repair the specialist lion enclosure fencing at Africa Alive.*

Storm Damage Appeal

A heartfelt appeal from the Zoological Society of East Anglia (ZSEA), the charity behind Banham Zoo and Africa Alive.

On Friday 18 February 2022 the high winds during Storm Eunice have brought down fencing around the lion enclosure at Africa Alive.

Any donation you can make will help us to fix the fencing, which requires specialist materials, so that we can reopen Africa Alive to the public as soon as possible.

Our three male lions Zero, Tor and Jabu, and our lionesses Mo, Sarabi and Kaya have been safe in their internal housing throughout the storm.

Despite lions living quite harmoniously in large prides, being confined in close quarters can obviously create tensions within the group. Our lions health and welfare is our paramount concern, and our dedicated keepers will go above and beyond to care for them and monitor their behaviours until their enclosure can be fixed.

Please help us in any way you can.

Thank you. Your support means everything to us.
