The Living Rainforest

We need your help!

Please support our Energy Crisis Appeal


Energy costs are rising rapidly and keeping our visitor centre heated for our rainforest animals and plants is costing at least 2 to 3 times more than a year ago, with further increases expected after the summer.

Due to our aging infrastructure and the unprecedented rise in energy costs, we are launching this summer funding appeal to help raise £30k for our new boilers and increased energy costs.

We are very grateful to Greenham Trust for their offer of £15k matched funding.

Please help us raise the remaining £15k before the end of the summer by

Ultimately, we would like to be able to move to greener heating options and although we are replacing our boiler with more efficient alternatives, our energy bills are still a huge part of our running costs. Our priority is always to keep our animals, plants and visitors safe so we are seeking additional funding to help with our heating costs.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates and news on how you can support us.

If you can, please support the Living Rainforest Energy Crisis Appeal by donating online to help get us through this challenging time.
