An Update on Zena

Home of the Wildheart Trust


After 40 years of being a family business we are proud to announce that we have become a charity! 
The IOW Zoo now belongs to The Wildheart Trust (reg charity 1171144) which was set up to make a meaningful impact on the health of the natural world as well as improving the well-being of animals in human care. 
The Trust is committed to providing a life-long home to rescued big cats as well as providing a loving home for other animal residents. We aim to engage, involve and empower people from both the heart and the head to help us in the global challenge to make the world a better place for animals.

Please remember that if you are a UK taxpayer you are eligible to Gift Aid when you visit!
