Leaving a gift in your will to the Zoological Society of Hertfordshire is one of the most effective ways to contribute to the care and survival of critically endangered species here at Paradise Wildlife Park and worldwide.

Leaving a gift in your will


The Zoological Society of Hertfordshire (ZSH) is a registered wildlife charity (charity no. 1108609) with a very knowledgeable and passionate team to care for our animals and raise funds to support wildlife conservation projects both in the UK and around the globe.

Paradise is home to over 500 exotic wild animals including critically endangered Tigers, Jaguars, Monkeys, Lemurs, Red Pandas, African Penguins and tapirs to name a few.  All are part of international efforts to conserve their wild counterparts and prevent extinction.

We are always very grateful for legacies to support our work.

Leaving a gift in your will to the Zoological Society of Hertfordshire is one of the most effective ways to contribute to the care and survival of critically endangered species here at Paradise Wildlife Park and worldwide.

Making a will is one of the most important things you can do to ensure that your loved ones and the good causes you are passionate about are provided for in the future.

It seems scary but making a will doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive and a solicitor will gently guide you through the process.

Once you’ve made provisions for your family and friends in your will, why not think about the Zoological Society of Hertfordshire?

It costs nothing during your lifetime and does not have to be a choice between your family, friends or the animals.

What type of gift can you leave?


  • A share of your estate – after you have provided for your loved ones, you can leave a share of what remains to charity.  This is known as a ‘residuary gift’
  • A cash gift – This is when you leave an exact sum of money to us.  It’s known as a ‘pecuniary gift’
  • A specific gift – Over the years we have received everything from crockery to prints to antique jewellery

If you have decided to include a gift in your will for the Zoological Society of Hertfordshire, thank you so much for your generosity.

Letting us know about it will give us a rough idea about longer term projects we commit to now.  Any information you give us will be completely confidential.
