Adopt a Meerkat

You can make a real difference to the care of our meerkats at the zoo and our wildlife conservation work, by purchasing an adoption today.

Our adoption packs make a wonderful gift for animal lovers of any age. Prices start from as little as £35 per year, with three different packs to choose from.

Meerkats are small, cat-like carnivores that are part of the mongoose and civet family. These mammals play an important role in maintaining ecological harmony in wilds of the African desert. You can spot our cheeky meerkat mob in their manor, based in The Ranch.


How do I adopt a meerkat?

First choose the adoption package that you wish to purchase online from the options below and then go on to make your animal selection.

Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because some of our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes. If your adopted species moves, we will advise you and you will be given the opportunity to transfer your adoption to another species.

Please note that our adoption gift packs are only available for UK delivery.
