About Animal Adoption


From ribbits to roars, our parks are home to a range of endangered animals which rely on your support.

By adopting your favourite species or even adopting an animal as a unique gift for a loved one, you are helping to care for our animals. You are also saving animals in the wild by supporting our many conservation projects here in Scotland and around the world.

We aim to process all adoption orders within 10 working days. You will also receive a confirmation email with details of your adoption and a gift certificate you can fill in at home. 

Please also note that the adopters name will not appear at the enclosure until the adoption has been processed and the pack is sent out. 

A digital photo and fact sheet can also be provided on request.

You can email at anytime to check on the status of your order – thank you for your patience!

Place your order by 6 December for guaranteed Christmas delivery.  (Don’t worry if you order after this date, we will send you a confirmation email with an electronic certificate that you can print off at home).

The packs, which are customisable for any age, from cub packs for children through to platinum packs for our high-level donors. Every adopter will receive a special adoption box, packed with information about your chosen animal along with different benefits you can chose to include, from bookmarks to VIP event days.
