We’re ZSL, an international conservation charity. Our vision is a world where wildlife thrives and we’re working every day to achieve this. From investigating the health threats facing animals, to helping people and wildlife live alongside each other, we are committed to bringing wildlife back from the brink of extinction. Through the work of our pioneering scientists, our dedicated conservationists and our unrivalled animal experts in our two zoos, we inspire, inform and empower people in the UK and across the world to stop wild animals going extinct.


WildCats Conservation Alliance is a funding initiative between ZSL and Dreamworld Wildlife Foundation, based in Regent’s Park, London. More information can be found at (www.conservewildcats.org/).
