We’re giving shout outs to some recent zoo donors who have made much-needed contributions to our funds over the past months. At the moment, these zoos are closed due to COVID-19 precautions, so please do give each and every one of them a huge clap for donating funds to essential conservation activities and to those staff that are still working so hard to keep the animals safe and well.
A huge thank you to Wilhelma Zoo in Stuttgart, Germany for its donation this week of €10,000 to support the conservation of wild Sumatran tigers bringing its total donations via WildCats/21st Century Tiger to €70,400! Wilhelma collects voluntary donations from visitors on entry to support its conservation funding.
Thanks also goes to amazing Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo that donated $5,000 in January to help fund projects in the Russian Far East and China. Henry Doorly has been donating to WildCats/ALTA since 2013.
A big shout out goes to Shepreth Wildlife Conservation Charity for the recent donation of £2,000, also to support Sumatran tiger conservation. Shepreth Wildlife Park is one of our most dedicated small zoo supporters with conservation at its core, that has donated nearly £50,000 since 2005.
Denmark’s Aalborg Zoo has recently donated €2.000 for Sumatran tiger conservation thanks to its visitors buying its lovely tiger conservation toys.
