Adopt an animal

Why adopt an animal?

More than 20% of Australia’s wildlife is threatened with extinction. Habitat loss, introduced species, disease and the impacts of climate change are increasing pressure on our unique native wildlife.

Zoos Victoria cares for more than 350 species of animals and 1500 botanical specimens. Many of these species are listed as endangered, some critically. Zoos Victoria is a not-for-profit conservation organisation. You can help by adopting one of Wild Adoption animals today!

Wild Adoption’s make the perfect gift:
A gift adoption gives twice – to our wonderful animals who are under threat and to your loved one.

The animal adoption pack includes:

  • A welcome pack featuring an image and factsheet of your chosen ambassador animal
  • An opportunity to learn about Zoos Victoria's great conservation work
  • An adoption certificate
  • Plush toy of your adopted animal

Adopt today!
