Save Dublin Zoo

Everyone here at Dublin Zoo is really missing you. We hope to be able to welcome you back again soon – but right now we need your help! As a registered charity, we rely on ticket sales for almost 90% of our funding, to keep Dublin Zoo going. After closing our gates for the second time this year, we’re sad to say the future of Dublin Zoo is uncertain – please help us Save Dublin Zoo!

Our goal is to raise vital funds to help cover the costs of animal care so we can continue to protect wildlife and support conservation for generations to come. It costs over €500,000 per month to give the animals the highest standard of care that they deserve and even the smallest of donations will help see us through these challenging times.

All funds raised by this campaign will go directly into the care of over 400 animals at Dublin Zoo.

We understand this is a challenging time for everyone, so we are asking people to only give what they can – every donation counts no matter how big or small.

Your support really means the world to us – and all of the incredible animals that live here at Dublin Zoo!
