Thanks for visiting our fundraising page.
We're a bunch of zookeepers past and present, on a mission to raise
as much money as possible for two conservation charities close to our
From the 30th June to the 2nd July 2017, we will be taking part in
the Snowdonia Challenge, which involves hiking 100km through the
national park in North Wales in just 3 days! We'll be hiking between
8-12 hours each day on mountainous terrain so it's going to be a huge
challenge of mental and physical endurance, but also a great opportunity
to raise funds and awareness for some worthy conservation
The money raised will be divided between "Save the Frogs" - a charity working to protect critically endangered amphibian populations - and the "Red Panda Network" - who are working hard to save the original pandas in the wild.

Why these charities?
Save the Frogs - More than a third of all
amphibian species are currently threatened with extinction (as a result
of human impact) and it is said that the amphibian extinction crisis is
the greatest conservation challenge in history.
Red Panda Network - Over the last 20 years
red panda numbers have more than halved, and there are now thought to be
as few as 2500 left in the wild. The threats posed by loss of habitat
and a increase in poaching is rapidly driving this enigmatic species
towards extinction. Through community based programs, RPN are working to
protect red pandas in the wild.
