Newquay Zoo has launched a new fund raising initiative aimed at the business community – The Conservation Club.

The aim is to create an opportunity for businesses to engage with the zoo and demonstrate their green credentials by helping to protect endangered species and preserve their natural habitats.

Zoo director Stewart Muir said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for businesses, both large and small, to be linked with us here at the zoo and to really make a difference in the future survival of many species.”

Par Sands Holiday Park has already signed up to the Conservation Club after recognising the potential for their business.

Spokesperson Jim Kane said: “It makes really good business sense for Par Sands Holiday Park to be linked with an organisation such as Newquay Zoo, plus it’s a great way for us to support everything that they do for conservation.”

Membership of The Conservation Club starts at £250 (+vat) but businesses can also join by donating equipment and services as an alternative or in addition to making a financial donation. Money raised from membership will contribute towards the building of new enclosures, providing specialist training and animal dietary research.
