Taking place on 1st December 2020, Giving Tuesday is a day dedicated to charities, like Newquay Zoo. It is a day of generosity and giving back, to balance the heady mass consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday and support good causes.

The Giving Tuesday global campaign has been running in the UK since 2014, and now officially runs in over 70 countries worldwide.

This year has been extremely difficult for us all, but giving to charities in need can make us feel good! In the run up to 1st December, we will be launching a dedicated Giving Tuesday fundraising campaign, where we hope to reach a set target.

As a conservation and education charity, funds raised as part of this campaign will go directly towards the care of our animals and vital wildlife conservation projects. Please, please donate what you can and help us spread the word using the #GivingTuesday hashtag on social media channels.


We understand that not everyone may want to donate online, so we have set up many other ways that you can support us in the run up to and on actual Giving Tuesday too:

  • Online: through our dedicated Giving Tuesday campaign here.
  •  Donate via a text donation - this is super easy to do!
    To donate £10, simply text NZOO to 70085. This costs £10 plus a standard rate message.
  • Purchase an Zoo Annual Pass
    With an Annual Pass, you can enjoy unlimited entry to the zoo for 12 months, making it great value for money.
  • Buy an animal adoption pack
    Animal adoptions make a great festive gift for someone special and you'll be supporting the zoo at the same time. Prices start from £35 for 12 months.
  • Treat an animal with our Amazon Wishlist
    The Wishlist is filled with different enrichment devices and needed items for our animals and keepers. Simply purchase an item and our friends at Amazon will deliver it straight to us.

Did you know that you can shop on Amazon and donate to our charity at no extra cost to you?      

Simply click here and then shop as normal.
Both Newquay Zoo and Paignton Zoo are listed on Amazon under 'South West Environmental Parks', which is the name of our parent charity.

We thank you so much for your support towards our Giving Tuesday campaign.
