Adopt an animal

Adopt an animal

Adopt an animal and become a real part of our conservation programme. Adoptions also make a worthwhile gift for anyone who loves animals.

For a small outlay, based on the cost of feeding and welfare, individuals or families can adopt an animal of their choice, making their visits to the Zoo even more special.

What do you receive when you adopt an animal?

You'll receive an A4 certificate with a photograph of your chosen animal - ready for framing. Your name is put on the 'Thank You' board at the enclosure. We'll also send you an Adoption Pack which includes a fact sheet on your species, two annual newsletters and a car sticker. We also offer a special Adoption Pack for children.
