Every single donation counts

As well as caring for and breeding as many species as possible at the park, did you know that Birdworld has a conservation fund.

The Birdworld conservation fund was set up solely to support local and international conservation initiatives for the protection of threatened species. Every penny it raises goes directly to our conservation initiatives. No administration costs are taken and 100% goes directly to the charities it supports.

Each year the initiatives supported are reviewed to ensure that the best possible results are being achieved and in 2014 we are proud to be raising money for several essential charities. The Great Bustard Project is a momentous initiative to bring the majestic Great Bustard back to the British countryside, where it has been missing for almost 200 years having been hunted to extinction.  We are fundraising for the project to help them bring rescued bustard eggs over from Spain and our experts will also be incubating these eggs at the park in our specialist rearing facilities.

We are also fundraising for and working closely with SANCCOB and other rescue organisations worldwide to support penguin conservation in the wild.Penguin numbers are declining at an alarming rate due to overfishing, pollution and other environmental factors so Birdworld is raising money to help rear rescued penguin chicks in the wild and re-release them.

In addition to the major projects, Birdworld supports many local conservation initiatives such as creation of butterfly meadows around the park, protection of the local woodlands (the park borders the Alice Holt forest) and protection and monitoring of local wild bird populations. The fund relies entirely on the generosity of individuals like you to continue our work both locally and internationally so please consider doing something so worthwhile, make a donation so we can help more threatened species to survive.
