Adopt an animal
Help us care for your favourite animal and support us from only £30 a year (adoption valid for 12 months).
Animal adoptions are a fantastic gift for any age and every penny contributed makes a huge difference towards our vital wildlife conservation projects.
How do I adopt a Zoo animal?
We have a range of different animals available for adoption and we also occasionally introduce special editions. Simply make your animal selection from the list below and then go on to choose your adoption package.
The animals currently available for adoption include: giraffe, elephant, tiger, gorilla, meerkat, orang-utan, red panda, rhino, cheetah, giant tortoise, snowy owl and the Komodo dragon - our latest animal adoption!
Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes.
