There are some big animals at the zoo, some small, some weird but all of them WONDERFUL! You can adopt a species of your choice or treat the animal lover in your life and not only will you be helping to fund vital conservation work around the world, you’ll also receive an exclusive adoption pack and your name will be displayed on a ‘Thank You’ plaque in the zoo near the animal you adopted.
