Between 2008 and 2010 Banham Zoo raised £6,000 towards the purchase of the BIAZA Reserve and then went on to support rangers at REGUA through the second phase of the BIAZA Reserve project. Since then Banham has donated to all the WLT-BIAZA partnership projects. A donation of £2,000 to BIAZA Buy an Acre Argentina in 2015 brought the total donated by the zoo since 2008 to £17,500.
By supporting the BIAZA Reserve and Buy an Acre projects in Mexico and Argentina, Banham Zoo is helping protect and restore the habitat of Central and South American species. As well as making a financial contribution to conservation, Banham Zoo educates visitors about conservation and is involved in research projects to conserve numerous species in the wild.
