Wild Welfare

We bring together global expertise to improve captive wild animal welfare

Charity Registration No. 1165941


On March 1, 2020 Karl and I will be running the Vitality Big Half Marathon to raise money for Wild Welfare. We each want to raise £300 for a total of £600 (That's $740!). So why are we running for Wild Welfare?

I would not be the conservationist and researcher I am today if it wasn't for the education and inspiration of all the zoos and aquariums I have visited and worked for. However these facilities are not created as equals and not every animal is given the proper care it needs. That is where Wild Welfare comes in.

Wild Welfare is the "first captive wild animal welfare charity, set up by zoo professionals, that is solely focused on improving welfare standards by uniting leading zoos and animal welfare NGOs around the world." They do this by providing a positive, inclusive approach when teaching sub-standard facilities about proper veterinary care, husbandry practices, and animal enrichment. Please take the time to visit their website and read up on some of their latest projects!
