How do I adopt?

Our adoption packages start from as little as £30 to adopt an animal for 12 months.

We have a selection of different animals available for adoption and we regularly introduce special editions. Animals currently available: African penguin, macaroni penguin, otter, seal, blue-spotted riboon tail ray, octopus and tufted puffin.

First choose the adoption pack you wish to purchase and then you can select your chosen animal.

Adoptions apply to the species rather than the individual animals. This is because animals may move from Living Coasts to other zoos as part of breeding programmes. 

Mother's Day gifts

Looking for a Mother's Day gift that shows you care? By adopting an animal, you are not only purchasing a gift with a difference, you will also help fund our vital conservation work.

The special edition Mother's Day adoption pack will also include a Mother's Day themed photo of your chosen animal.

To receive this special edition adoption pack, please put the start date as 26th March.

Please note: the last date to order the Mother's Day pack is Thursday 23rd March.
