Animal Adoptions

If you are an animal lover or know someone who is, adopt one of our nine favourite Bristol Zoo animals today and receive an exciting adoption pack in the post. Your pack will contain two tickets to the Zoo, a cuddly toy, an adoption certificate, your name displayed at the exhibit* and a fact-file about your chosen animal. Take your pick from:

  • Afia the baby gorilla
  •  Ketan the Asiatic lion
  • Babushka the meerkat
  • Jock the silverback gorilla
  • Poppy the penguin
  • Lady Hilary the red panda
  • Biggie the giant tortoise
  • Afu the ring-tail lemur
  • Rio the two-toed sloth 

Adoptions can be made in a matter of minutes online for just £50. Adoptions last for 12 months from your chosen start date.

Please note delivery times on sloth adoptions will be longer due to cuddly toy stock levels. Please allow up to 2 weeks for adoptions to be delivered.

 *If you do not wish to have your name displayed at your chosen animal’s exhibit, please email on the day of your purchase to let us know.
