Donation for Conservation

With your support, Perth Zoo can continue its vital work saving threatened wildlife. Because Perth Zoo covers all administration costs, 100% of your donation will help to save threatened species from extinction.

Make a Donation for Conservation

Donations to our conservation funding program are used to support field-based conservation in partnership with local and global conservation partners. Thanks to your support, Perth Zoo has invested more than $4 million into field-based conservation since 2007, delivering tangible, long term outcomes such as:

  • Protecting and securing natural habit;
  • Funding anti-poaching units;
  • Providing community education and employment;
  • Regional species breeding programs.

Your donation is fully tax-deductible (for donations over AU$2), and there are many ways to donate. Donate to Perth Zoo's conservation funding program online now or download a Donation Form (PDF).

Workplace Giving

Workplace giving is a simple and effective method of making regular donations to a nominated fund. You pledge an amount of your choice and your donation is automatically deducted from your pay and forwarded to the nominated fund. The best part is that your donations are taken out before tax which means that a deduction of $20 from pre-tax earnings may only cost you $14 (assuming a marginal tax rate of 40%).

If you would like more information about workplace giving, contact the Partnerships team at Perth Zoo on 08 9474 0339, email partnerships@perthzoo.wa.gov.au or download a Workplace Giving Form (PDF).


A Lasting Gift in Your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will to Perth Zoo will help ensure the Zoo remains a haven for wildlife and for generations to come. Bequests are a lasting and positive legacy that will be invested in the future of the Zoo and the wildlife it helps protect.

How to leave a gift in your Will

A bequest is an instruction in your Will that specifies the amount and type of gift you are making to Perth Zoo. We recommend you consult a solicitor when drafting your Will. There are several types of bequests, which include:

  • Residuary: The remainder of your estate after your loved ones have been taken care of;
  • Percentage: A percentage of your estate;
  • Pecuniary: A fixed cash amount.

There are other types of bequest that your solicitor can advise you of. When leaving a gift in your Will, we suggest the following wording:

Residuary - this is a gift of whatever remains of your Estate:

 “I, _______________, give to Zoological Parks Authority (Perth Zoo) of 20 Labouchere Road, South Perth WA 6951 for its general purposes the residue of my Estate”

Pecuniary - A fixed cash amount:

“I, _______________, give to Zoological Parks Authority (Perth Zoo) of 20 Labouchere Road, South Perth WA 6951 for its general purposes the sum of $___________.”

Percentage - A percentage of your Estate:

“I, _______________, give to Zoological Parks Authority (Perth Zoo) of 20 Labouchere Road, South Perth WA 6951 for its general purposes ___________% of my Estate.”
