At Paignton Zoo, we're fortunate to be home to a bachelor group of four Western lowland gorillas. They may be the smallest of the gorilla subspecies, but this does not make them any less impressive! Western lowland gorillas are Critically Endangered, mainly as a result of habitat degradation and poaching.
 

How do I adopt a gorilla?

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.
