A worthy cause
Since Yorkshire Wildlife Park rescued 13 lions from a run down zoo in Romania in 2013, this was the catalyst to create the Foundation that has grown rapidly to support countless international projects around the globe.
Supporting projects including the Amur Leopard and Tiger Alliance and The Giraffe Conservation Foundation, Yorkshire Wildlife Park Foundation has also funded two key Save the Rhino schemes improving the safety of threatened rhino’s in Kenya.
The Foundation has also supported conservation projects in Madagascar for blue-eyed black lemurs not to mention being instrumental in a global fight to protect endangered polar bears and most recently the re-homing of four endangered Ussuri brown bears from Japan.

What are our partner charities doing this Giving Tuesday?
Painted Dog Conservation
This Giving Tuesday, Painted Dog Conservation is asking the public to remember the Mpindo pups. PDC is asking the public to help them raise $4000 this Giving Tuesday for Mpindo primary schoolchildren to visit their Iganyana Children’s Bush Camp for a full four-day camp next year.
The impact of their camp in raising an environmentally conscious future generation is well documented and regarded. PDC’s children’s Bush Camp is 15 years old and has changed the lives of more than 12,000 children, but only a third of these children are now adults and taking up active roles in society where they can influence change.
