How do I adopt a Zoo animal?

We have a range of different animals available for adoption and we regularly introduce special editions. Make your animal selection from the list below and then choose your adoption package.

These currently include: giraffeelephanttigergorillameerkatorang utanred pandarhinocheetahgiant tortoise and the special edition is our snowy owl.​

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