Our wonderful adoption packages help us continue to carry out vital conservation work and look after and care for our animals.

Did you know that each year our animals eat:

  • 14.8 tons fish
  • 8.5 tons meat
  • 1,309,105 mealworms
  • 36,135 bananas
  • 16,060 oranges
  • 12,045 carrots
  • 9,875 boiled potatoes
  • 19,270 apples
  • 7,227 lettuces
  • 8,760 eggs
  • 2,920 sweet potatoes
  • 2,190 bunches of grapes

The cost of housing, caring and providing for our animals soon mounts up. Adopting an animal, and your ongoing support, really does make a difference to our Zoo!

The scheme is open to anyone and all adoptions run for 12 months and can be taken out at any time*. You can adopt an animal completely, by paying the full adoption fee, or share the adoption with others, which is what we call a part adoption.

All of our animals can be part adopted, this is the most common adoption people take and it costs just £50 for 12 months for any of our animals.

Prices for FULL animal adoption vary, as they are based on the cost of feeding and the upkeep of a particular animal for one year. If you would like to find out the costs to WHOLY adopt any of our animals, please contact us for prices. All the animals at the Welsh Mountain Zoo are up for Adoption and they all need ‘ Zoo Parents ‘.
