The Aspinall Foundation are devoted to saving rare and endangered animals, returning them to protected areas in the wild. They are a charity which works to promote wildlife conservation. Set up in 1984, the Aspinall Foundation runs two zoos, Port Lympne Zoo and Howletts Wild Animal Park in Kent, England. We also support a number of conservation projects overseas to protect endangered species.
The Aspinall Foundation zoos have an impressive record in the breeding of rare and endangered animals. They are currently home to 14 Indian, Siberian and Sumatran tigers. The Foundation set up a project for Gorillas orphaned by bush meat poachers in the Republic of Congo in the late 1980s and in 1998, set up an orphan gorilla project in the neighbouring state of Gabon.
Humans are likely to cause the extinction of a quarter of all known species in the next 20 years, unless we work to protect them now. 48% of primate species face exinction; threats include habitat destruction and illegal bush meat trade. If just one species disappears, many others will suffer. Imagine a world without these animals!
Adopt an animal with The Aspinall Foundation with adoptions ranging from L3.50/month for bronze adoption up to L15/month for platinum adoption. All animals at our parks can be adopted from big cats to elephants and monkeys to rhinos. Your adoption will help to protect, feed, maintain health and enrich through play, the animals under the care of The Aspinall Foundation. In return you’ll receive your adoption pack including PC wallpaper, e-factsheet and e-certificate for your adopted animal, a monthly newsletter, twice yearly updates on your animal and FREE entry to one of our parks. Gold or platinum adoptions may entitle you to further free entries and keeper experiences.
