Every year, we get involved in conservation campaigns which raise funds and/or awareness for a conservation related issue. By supporting our campaigns, you can help to make a difference.
Saving Philippine Cockatoos
For just over ten years, Chester Zoo has been supporting the Katala Foundation project which strives to save the lives of threatened Philippine Cockatoos.
There are now plans to build a coal fired power plant in the Philippines which could wipe out the largest and most important population of Philippine Cockatoos left on earth, at the Rasa Island Wildlife Sanctuary.
Our friends at the Katala project have asked us to sign a petition to stop the coal plant being built. If you’d like to add your support you can do so below.
If They're Gone Campaign
Led by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), we are partnering a range of organisations on the If They’re Gone campaign in 2013 to raise awareness about the plight of orangutans, rhinos, elephants and rhinos.

Each year the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) run a conservation campaign for a particular conservation issue. Zoos and aquaria across Europe join forces to support the campaigns.
These campaigns have been really successful and provide a major boost to conservation efforts – often, over half a million Euros in total is raised!
This year, we are supporting the EAZA IUCN/SSC Southeast Asia Campaign and we have pledged to raise €10,000 Euros!
Find out more about the campaign and how you can get involve.
