Insects, reptiles and amphibians and marine life also live in National Trust for Scotland places.  Protect these beautiful habitats for wildlife with a National Trust for Scotland gift membership.  Find out more here.
London Zoo membership gives you unlimited visits
The Zoological Society of London's mission is "to promote and achieve the worldwide conservation of animals and their habitats".  It has two zoos, London and Whipsnade - and ZSL membership is a great gift for animal lovers, especially if they live close to London or Whipsnade Zoos.  There are all sorts of member benefits but please note that you must book in advance online as ZSL is restricting visitor numbers to keep everyone safe and spread visitors throughout the day.  Some attractions are closed and at the moment there are no animal experiences or keeper talks to avoid people gathering in groups.  You can buy memberships for adults, famlies and concession memberships - and know that you are helping the animals at ZSL and conservation projects around the world with your gift!   Treat someone to a Gift Membership here

Give a membership to the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust
There is a tendancy for many of us to look at what we think of as wasteland, that water-logged, boggy stuff you can see.  But it's vital to many waterbirds, reptiles & mammals and its protection is critical to the planet's health and the animals' wellbeing.  The WWT helps protect these habitats, protect endangered species & inspires people to take positive conservation action.  There are 10  WWT centres open to visitors around the UK.  You can buy a membership here.
