Revels with a cause: How to party with a clear conscience

Party animals: The Zoo Project at Benimussa Park aims to protect Ibiza’s seabed and help reforest the planet

Best for Helping reforest the planet

The Zoo Project at Benimussa Park

Visiting The Zoo Project is a must for young ravers experiencing the White Isle for the first time. All the techno action takes place outside in a sprawling festival-style space that looks just like an abandoned zoo — hence the name of the party. This summer, The Zoo Project has continued to work with The Nature Project, a local charity committed to conserving the island’s seabed habitats. And it’s also set up a partnership with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organisation working to reforest the planet. So far, The Zoo Project has already donated 2,000 trees. Every Sun until Oct 6, from £30, with one tree planted for every ticket bought, thezooproject.com

Party-goers wishing to help will be offered drinks and refreshments, as well as free entry to O Beach’s sun-drenched garage, hip hop and soulful house showcase, One, later in the day.
