Conservation

Conservation Goals

Nature everywhere is declining at a speed never previously seen, due to humans’ ever-increasing demand for more food and energy. According to a recent UN report, one million animal and plant species are now threatened with extinction. In short, there has never been a more important time to engage with the natural world.

In this section, you can discover all the exciting work that we are doing to help conserve wildlife around the world. We work with other zoos and wildlife organisations through our affiliation with the British and Irish Association of Zoo's and Aquariums (BIAZA) and European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA). And of course, we all can play a role in conservation through simple action in our own lives.

This important work that the Curraghs Wildlife Park participates in would not be possible without our annual pass holders, visitors and supporters. Visit the Conservation Fund page to find out more about the vital projects your donations go towards.

Conservation Fund

Thanks to your contributions, we donated £5200 to our chosen charities in 2019. Please see the Conservation Fund page for more information on the amazing causes you have helped to fund.

This year the Conservation Fund will help a local conservation cause. We have teamed up with Manx Wildlife Trust to support their Manx Shearwater Project.

Breeding Programs

We participate in Breeding programs, organised in European studbooks, which share information worldwide and cooperate on a global level to manage and breed captive populations of Endangered species and zoo populations.
