About The Aspinall Foundation
The Aspinall Foundation is a world-class animal conservation charity who are dedicated to protecting endangered animals around the globe. We are devoted to returning captive bred animals to protected wilderness areas and reserves located throughout the world. We also work alongside communities to reforest vulnerable habitats to provide a home for iconic species such as Gorillas, Lemurs and Wild dogs.
Over the past few years alone, we have bred and released hundreds of animals from our wildlife parks back to their natural habitats in the wild. In Congo, Gabon, Java and Madagascar we are delivering innovative programmes to release animals “Back to the Wild” from both our parks in UK as well as rescuing wildlife from the illegal pet trade and those orphaned from poaching.
This work is only achievable through the generous support and donations we have received. In order to continue this critical work, we need to develop more long-term supporters that can help us make these goals a reality.
