The world's tallest land mammal, thanks to their towering legs and long necks, giraffes are truly majestic animals. We're home to a herd of six Rothschild’s giraffes, which are listed as an Endangered species. Rothschild's giraffes are managed in zoos to ensure a healthy breeding population.
 

How do I adopt a Giraffe?

First choose the adoption package you wish to purchase from the options below 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.
