Adopt an animal

From ribbits to roars, who will you adopt?

Animal adoption is a great way to support the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS), Edinburgh Zoo and Highland Wildlife Park by giving threatened species a future and helping create a world where nature is protected, valued and loved. Treat yourself or buy as a gift for the animal lover in your life!

RZSS Adopt Online

By purchasing an adoption, you are helping us take care of the animals in our parks as well as support conservation, education and research projects here in Scotland and around the world.

We aim to process all adoption orders within 10 working days. You will receive a confirmation email with details of your adoption and a link to a gift certificate you can fill in at home. A digital photo and fact sheet can also be provided on request. 

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

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

Are you purchasing on behalf of a School or educational body?
