  • RSPB Reserves: The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) operates puffinover 200 conservation parks right across the UK, meaning you’re almost guaranteed to find one close to you. Better still, they generally don’t charge admission – instead, they rely on donations from the public as well as purchases from their on-site shops, where you can buy bird food and feeders, other wildlife products, outdoor clothing and books, stationary and gifts. So why not enjoy a cheap day out and show your support for some of the UK’s most endangered species.

Voluntary donations in ticket prices

It is worth remembering that many wildlife parks in the UK operate as charities, relying on not just ticket prices but also donations and tax breaks to fund their conservation works. And in many cases, the advertised ticket price includes a voluntary donation of around 10% per ticket – so you can save money simply by opting out of this charge.
