Leaving a legacy for the future
Why I am leaving a gift to The Aspinall Foundation
As a young child, I was always fascinated by animals, especially those that were wild and exotic. This interest developed further when I watched David Attenborough‘s first major nature documentary, ‘Zoo Quest‘ which in the early 1960‘s was the most popular wildlife programme. Then when on a holiday to South Africa, I was shocked by the fact that I saw no black rhino, in what is their native home! I genuinely believe that nature is our inheritance; as natures heirs we should do everything we can to conserve the natural habitat and animals with which we share this earth. This is why I would like to ask you if you would consider doing something that I have done - leaving a gift in your Will to The Aspinall Foundation. Even if you do not think you will have much to leave, you would be surprised how little it takes to transform an endangered animals life. I hope you will consider taking some time to think about your future, and that of the work. The Aspinall Foundation is doing to protect endangered animals worldwide.
In the future, gifts in wills can enable us to do even more for endangered species
The Aspinall Foundation has been protecting animals at our parks for 30+ years and successfully returning them to the wild since 1984.
This commitment to return some of the world's most iconic animals to the wild continues to this day.
A gift in your will to The Aspinall Foundation can ensure this work continues, and that future generations live on a planet more abundant with wildlife, and with some of the most iconic but endangered species saved with your support.
