The Covid 19 crisis has meant that Fota Wildlife Park had to temporarily close its gates to the public for 8 weeks this year.  Fota is a non-profit organisation and is also a registered conservation charity and a large portion of the income comes from daily visitors and annual pass holders, during this period the Park lost €1,000,000 in income.

While the Park was empty of visitors for the eight weeks the cost of feeding the 135 species, approximately €35,000 a month, continued and the animals in the park continued to get the same level of care they receive year-round - and if you would like to make a donation today to go towards the feeding bill and operational costs you can do so above.


Fota is completely self-financing, relying on gate receipts, membership fees, retail sales and animal sponsorships and for its income.

We would like to thank you for your support - every donation makes a difference.
