Animal Adoptions

If you are an animal lover or know someone who is, adopt one of our seven favourite Bristol Zoo animals today and receive an exciting adoption pack in the post. 

An animal adoption makes a lovely gift, we can post your pack to you, or, directly to the person you are buying it for.

Each adoption helps us to care for our animals here at Bristol Zoo and also supports our conservation work across the globe.

If you are purchasing an adoption as a Christmas gift, you will need to place your order by Wednesday 18 December to guarantee delivery before Christmas.

Your pack will contain:

  • a ticket to the Zoo
  • a cuddly toy
  • an adoption certificate
  • your name displayed at the exhibit*
  • a fact-file about your chosen animal

You can pick from the following animals here at Bristol Zoo:

Afia the baby gorilla 
Babushka the meerkat
Jock the silverback gorilla
Poppy the penguin
Biggie the giant tortoise
Chota the red panda
Sahee the Asiatic lion
Sahee the Asiatic lion

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

*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.
