New stretch target

We have no idea how long the Coronavirus pandemic will affect us, so it is very likely we will need the stretch target to survive. 


Zoo2U is a small, family run zoo situated in Alsager, Cheshire and is home to around 60 animals. We are predominantly an outreach zoo and have visited hundreds of schools, colleges, care homes, special needs facilities and businesses big and small over the past 9 years with our animal encounter team. We have a heart for educating children and adults about wildlife and conservation issues that affect the UK and abroad. With the opening of the Discovery Centre nearly 5 years ago we now offer close encounters with our friendly Meerkats, Skunks and Reptiles and for those who dream of working with animals we can also offer adult and junior keeper experiences. 

Running our animal centre costs a lot of money. Our animals receive the highest standard of care we can offer and this includes specific heating and lighting provision for many enclosures, specially designed animal diets, veterinary care and of course our all important team of keepers. 

Our animal keepers unfortunately don't have the option to be furloughed or work from home, the animals still need them daily! Our running costs don't go away just because the world is on lockdown. With the 100% loss of income, we have no choice but to ask for your help, we would be extremely grateful for anything you can spare, no matter how small! 

Over the next few weeks while the country adjusts to a new way of life we will be posting lots of videos of our animals for your all to enjoy. We will also offer educational activities for the children and something fun for the big kids too! Follow us on facebook to find out more! 

As a way of showing our gratitude we are offering a prize draw once we hit our target amount. The winner will be chosen at random and will receive an animal experience voucher for two (worth £50), which can be redeemed for the Meerkats, Skunks or Reptiles (Don't forget we will need your name and an email address). Finally, a very big thank you for reading this and supporting us to ensure our future after Coronavirus. 

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
