Colchester Zoo has always cared passionately about the world’s threatened species, and created its charity Action for the Wild to assist projects worldwide.
It provides both financial and technical assistance, and aims to raise awareness among local people in community conservation programmes, as well as supporting conservation research.
Since 2004, when Action for the Wild achieved charitable status, over £2 million has been donated to a broad spectrum of conservation projects worldwide, and encompasses a wide range of species from orangutans to vultures, hornbills to Komodo dragons and elephants to moths.
