Adopt an Animal

For just €35 you can adopt one of our scaly residents for one whole year!

Your contribution will go towards feeding and looking after your chosen animal for an entire year!

Many of these animals are Red Listed by the IUCN which means they need our help to preserve their species in the wild.

During this strained time, while we cannot host visitors at the zoo – your support through adoption can go a long way!

In return for your help you will receive an adoption pack which includes:

  • The adoption certificate
  • A fact sheet about the animal you have adopted
  • 2  postcards
  • 20% discount on your next visit
  • A plaque with your name will be displayed here in the zoo on our wall of adoptees.

If you wish to adopt a specific animal that you know from the zoo, or any animal that isn’t on the list below, please drop us an email!

Also if you’re purchasing as a gift for someone please drop us an email with their name and full address.
