Newquay Zoo is looking for help from the local business community to boost its conservation efforts.
The zoo has a new membership scheme for corporate supporters – the SOS (Save Our Species) Club – offering a tiered structure of recognition for business partners who wish to support the zoo’s conservation activities with financial assistance, or through the donation of consumables, goods and services.
For example, one of the zoo’s newest members – Newquay Fish & Chip shop, ‘Flounders’, will be making a weekly donation of fish for its penguins.
Support from SOS Club members can help the Zoo to offset some of the day-to-day running costs, and redirect funds towards conservation, education and outreach.
Newquay Zoo director, Stewart Muir, said: “Supporting our conservation work by directly becoming involved through your company helps us to save endangered species.
“By using our facilities, becoming a corporate sponsor or donating materials enables us to enhance our contribution to conservation and breeding programmes, and deliver our message of support for global biodiversity to a wide audience of people of all ages”.
