Adopt an Animal

If you have a favourite Zoo animal how about adopting it? Your animal will still live here, but you'll go home knowing you're supporting the Zoo. Adoption fees help us take good care of the animals, protect endangered species, and pursue on-going conservation efforts.



Individuals, Schools, Clubs and Corporations are all welcome in our Adopt an Animal "family".

Adopting an animal makes a totally unique gift. What's inside the package depends on the adoption fee.
Become a "parent" today!
