THE ZOOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF EAST ANGLIA

About Zoological Society of East Anglia

 

Founded in 2013, the Zoological Society of East Anglia (ZSEA) is a charitable trust, dedicated to Conservation, Animal Welfare and Education. The charity works both overseas and in the UK supporting work at Banham Zoo and Africa Alive!

As a visitor to Africa Alive! you can be assured that every penny is directed to supporting and implementing our charitable objectives. We have no shareholders, no one to take a profit and hold no motivation as a charity other than meeting our aims in Wildlife Conservation, Animal Welfare and Education.

The Future is bright – the future is ZSEA!

In 1968 Banham Zoo was founded and in 1991 Africa Alive! (formerly Suffolk Wildlife Park) was purchased. The founding of ZSEA puts the parks in public ownership through the charitable status, so rewarding the people of East Anglia and those visiting Norfolk & Suffolk too, for their cherished support over the past 40+ years.

With your continued support, the guidance of the Charity’s independent Trustees, the passion and dedication of ZSEA’s staff, and with the assistance of the growing band of volunteers, ZSEA is primed to forge ahead. Whilst the animals in our care will benefit from continuous improvements in their environment and care, visitors too will be encompassed and included in the activities of the parks whether of day to day or of the extraordinary.

We sincerely hope you enjoy your day with us, that you are amazed and your sense of wonder is aroused by the extraordinary animals you will encounter; that you will gain a greater understanding about the world’s wealth of wildlife, in turn inspiring you to help in whatever ways you are able, to ensure continuance and diversity.
