Adopt an animal

Are you looking for a special allocation within the framework of sustainability, nature conservation or corporate social responsibility?  By adopting one of our animals as a business or individual, you will help us to conserve nature and its animals.

Your support will be used for the conservation of endangered animal species, international breeding and reintroduction programs, nature and environmental education, daily care of the adopted animal, maintenance of the zoo, and conservation of nature that is under threat.

As an adopter, you can opt to support individual animals in four categories.
1. The big crowd pullers, such as polar bears and African elephants (Category I)
2. Larger and more influential animals, such as the white lion and orangutan (Category II)
3. Smaller animals, such as penguins and meerkats (Category III)
4. The smallest animals, such as fish and birds. (Category  II       II)
