We have been overwhelmed by the support that we have received so far, from so many people. Not only the direct donations to this page and by post, but all the amazing people and businesses who have raised money on our behalf. 

The money is helping us to continue to care for our animals, who eat top quality food and have specialist diets to keep them fit and healthy. Our dedicated keepers and expert vets continue to do everything they can to care for the animals to the very highest standards, day in, day out.



Being closed not just once but twice in 2020, and now again in 2021 as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic has led to a significant loss of income to our charity. We are in vital need of funds now to help us get through this time.

So please, please continue to support us by giving what you can. 

  • Donating via text - to donate £10, simply text NZOO to 70085
    Text will cost £10 plus one standard network message rate and come straight to us.

Both Paignton Zoo and Newquay Zoo are listed on Amazon under 'South West Environmental Parks', which is the name of our parent charity.

Newquay Zoo is a special place, home to special animals - lions, lemurs, penguins, sloths and many, many more. It means so much to so many people. The sights, the sounds and yes, even the smells of Newquay Zoo make it what it is – a great zoo in a great community!

We thank you so much for your support and any donations.
