Chester Zoo has raised over £1.5m to help save the attraction from closure.
Chester Zoo has been left fighting for its future and faces crippling debt as the attraction has been ordered to close indefinitely by the government.
The Zoo has not been able to open due to the coronavirus outbreak, despite being a huge outdoor site with all the necessary safety measures in place.
The closure is having a devastating impact on the zoo which is heading towards debt in excess of £24m by the end of 2020.
The zoo needs to raise £1.6m each month to keep it going to overcome crippling debts.
Their just giving page which was set up to help towards costs ticked over £1.5m on Thursday night.
The Save Our Zoo campaign will raise money to help towards keeping the Zoo running and to look after its 35,000 critically endangered animals.
