Words: Katie Gartland

After being hit financially by Covid 19, Dublin Zoo are appealing for donations to keep them afloat.

Dublin Zoo have launched a campaign for donations to help them stay open. They have had to use money from their emergency fund to keep themselves afloat.

It costs the Zoo over €500,000 to feed and care for its animals each month. Due to pandemic restrictions and less tourists this year, they have faced a finical struggle.

“We are in serious financial difficulty because of Covid-19 and are launching the Save Dublin Zoo campaign to raise much needed funds to help care for the animals here at the Zoo,” said Dublin Zoo Director Dr Christoph Schwitzer on Morning Ireland today.
