Our Vision & Mission

The only reason we’re here is because one man, George Mottershead, had a dream of ‘a zoo without bars’.

That devotion to the welfare and protection of wildlife has always been at the heart of everything we do.

For over 80 years, we’ve dedicated ourselves to protecting biodiversity and fighting to save species from extinction. These days, we sum all this up in our vision and mission.

Our vision is for a diverse, thriving and sustainable natural world.

Our mission is to be a major force in conserving the living world.

You can be part of both, by supporting our work. Find out how here.
