About Us

Marwell Wildlife, which is based in Hampshire is an action oriented conservation charity at the forefront of conservation work around the world, working in partnership with communities, statutory agencies and other non-governmental organisations. We engage with over 35,000 children and young people through our conservation educational programmes, and welcome over 500,000 visitors each year to our 140 acre zoological park ‘Marwell Zoo’. A visit to Marwell Zoo is a chance to get close to the wonders of the natural world – and play a big part in helping to save them. From ring-tailed coatis to majestic giraffes, endangered tigers to frilled lizards, curious meerkats to pygmy hippos – our zoo is home to over 170 exotic and endangered species, in beautiful, landscaped surroundings. Just by visiting, you’ll be making a big contribution to our projects to conserve species and habitats. Marwell’s field based staff lead a variety of conservation programmes, including reintroducing desert antelopes in the Sahara, undertaking habitat restoration in Hampshire and supporting community based conservation projects in Northern Kenya.
