A small donation means a big difference

Hertfordshire Zoo is a charity and your ticket helps us protect endangered animals in the UK and around the world. If you add a 10% donation, which is included in the ticket price displayed on the site, we can claim tax back from the government's Gift Aid scheme.

This means we get an extra 25p for every £1 you spend at no extra cost to you.
