Welcome to Perth Zoo

Stand with Perth Zoo on the frontline of wildlife conservation.

With your support we can do more – more research, more conservation work, more rehabilitation, and more medical care for wildlife.
Endangered species will continue disappearing at accelerated rates if we do not remain steadfast in our mission to save them. Your donation will help the care of animals at Perth Zoo and protect critically endangered species in native habitats worldwide.

From national parks in southwest Western Australia to the plains of Africa and mountain ranges of Papua New Guinea, you will give numbats, orangutans, tree kangaroos and many more species a fighting chance of survival. 

Together we can save wildlife.
All donations $2 or more are tax deductible and every dollar goes towards saving wildlife.
Thank you.


Conservation in the Wild

Your donation towards Conservation in the Wild will have a direct impact on at-risk animals in their natural habitat by:
  • safely putting teams at the forefront of conservation. 
  • providing resources to ensure the safety, welfare, and care of animals.
  • building infrastructure to maintain conservation operations and improve habitats.
  • mobilising anti-poaching units.
  • providing community education to change attitudes and adopt ethical behaviour and even turn wildlife hunters into protectors!

Conservation at Perth Zoo

The way we care for one another, and protect our environment, ultimately affects the wellbeing of us all.

Your donation helps Perth Zoo to:
  • feed and care for the animals.
  • treat and nurse sick and injured wildlife including hundreds of wild black cockatoos and marine turtles.
  • employ passionate and dedicated staff who are committed to looking after the Zoo for you.
  • fund our breeding programs which are aimed at fighting species extinction.
  • work beyond our borders with partners to help wild animals in wild places.
Perth Zoo is a world leader in native species conservation. Our breed-for-release programs are giving some of Australia's endangered species, such as the Dibbler, Numbat and Western Swamp Tortoise, a fighting chance to thrive. But our conservation work extends well beyond our gates.

Future Zoo

Perth Zoo is a world leading conservation zoo, but it is vital that we don’t stand still. That’s why we've developed this master plan to create your future zoo, a zoo that moves with you. A donation towards Future Zoo will help create more magical wildlife moments for you while giving our animal ambassadors more room to roam. Learn more about Future Zoo and how your donation helps.
