How do I adopt an animal?

Our adoptions start from as little as £30 to adopt one of our animals for 12 months. 

We have 10 different animals available for adoption and we regularly introduce special editions. These currently include: giraffe, elephant, tiger, gorilla, meerkat, orang utan, red panda, rhino, cheetah, giant tortoise and the special edition is our snowy owl.​

First choose the adoption package you wish to purchase and then make your animal selection. ​

Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes.
