Paignton Zoo focuses on making a difference where it matters, and encouraging as many people as possible to join them in doing so. From their two zoos and the reserves, and the field projects to the advocacy campaigns, they are here to achieve a vision where everyone can join in building a world rich in wildlife and wild places.
Paignton Zoo is part of Wild Planet Trust. The Trust was established in 2019; however, their work as a registered education, scientific and conservation charity goes back to 1957, with the formation of the Herbert Whitley Trust (later to become the Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust).
Although based in Devon, the work has a truly global impact, as they strive to achieve their vision through their field projects, and by inspiring their guests that visit the zoos and reserves.
