We fund research and conservation projects to protect animals and habitats worldwide

Story

We have put together a combined fundraising page for the three of us taking part in the Brighton Marathon in April.  As some of you may be aware, none of us have completed a 26.2 mile run before and it is unlikely that the three of us will move 26.2 miles combined for weeks after the event!

 

As most of you will know, we are three elephant Keepers from ZSL Whipsnade Zoo and one crazy day last year, we decided to run a Marathon! Our obvious choice was to run for ZSL as we see how much support this charity needs on a day-to-day basis. Both ZSL London and Whipsnade Zoo educate thousands of people every year and care for over 600 species.  The charity also relies on donations to continue to operate its Conservation Programmes in over 80 countries worldwide, conserving species and  environments and promoting sustainability. And, as if that wasn’t enough, we carry out vital scientific research relevant to preserving animals and their habitats.  This is why we need  your support- to help ZSL continue to be a world-leading organsiation.

 

We have already had some generous support towards our cause but we wanted to set this page up to capture any of you that we haven’t pestered with our sponsorship forms! We are doing all the hard work both with looking after the elephants and running a very very long way! So please give generously!
