Visitors to Pensthorpe Natural Park’s Bird and Wildlife Fair helped raise £2,150, which has been given to the Norfolk Wildlife Trust.
A percentage of profits from the fair were donated to the trust by Bill and Deb Jordan, owners of the park.
David Thompson, chairman of Norfolk Wildlife Trust, said: "We are really grateful for this donation.
"It is going to be used towards the maintenance and improvement of our wetlands, many of which are of international importance. It takes a lot of management, a lot of care and a lot of detailed attention, so thank you."
Meanwhile, about 800 people turned out to the park's new summer market, shopping along side groups of ducklings who waddled through the stalls.
