From cheetahs in Africa to hazel dormice in Britain, species across the world are in danger of going extinct, unless we act now. The good news is that ZSL's work is helping vulnerable wildlife recover all over the globe and by taking part or donating to this Around the World in 30 Days fundraising challenge, you will help us to continue this worldwide conservation work.

Let’s take strides to end extinction

Taking part in Around the World in 30 Days is simple!
1. Choose your goals

Sign up and set your targets. Select your fundraising and distance goals (2km, 5km, 8km/day or choose your own). We recommend aiming for £150 if you can.

2. Roar loud and proud

Ask your friends, family, colleagues and neighbours to support you. Share your fundraiser on social media, WhatsApp and email so they can sponsor you to reach your target and track your progress. Don’t forget to tag us with @officialZSL and #AroundtheWorld.

3. Make tracks for wildlife

From 1-30 June, walk, run, wheel, swim, cycle or roll for wildlife, whenever and wherever you like. Track your distance travelled on the free Strava app or you can add your distances manually on your fundraising page.

Why we need you!

Climate change and human activity have pushed our precious planet to its limit causing massive habitat and species loss. When nature loses, we all do. Urgent action to help people and wildlife live better together, is the only way to save the natural world we love and depend upon. 

That’s where ZSL comes in, and where you can play your part.

We are an international conservation charity, driven by science, working every day to restore wildlife at our Zoos – London and Whipsnade, in the UK and around the world. We’re a powerful movement of conservationists, working together to save animals on the brink of extinction and those who could be next.  

We care about all wildlife and work tirelessly to help it recover. 

By taking part in Around the World in 30 Days or supporting others who are, you are helping us to continue this vital work for wildlife recovery, thank you. 

Every pound raised makes a big difference…


£10 could power cameras that monitor wildlife around the world, from gorillas in Cameroon to camels in the Mongolian desert.



£40 could train a nature guide in Nepal’s National Parks, to share knowledge and support the protection of tigers, rhinos and pangolins.


£100 could buy equipment for our wildlife vets who are working to save endangered animals in the UK and around the world.
