Corporate Adoption Pack  

Why Adopt?

The suggested donation for sponsoring an animal is based on a contribution toward food, heating, enclosure maintenance, animal husbandry, and veterinary fees for your animal. You will also be assisting on-going conservation projects at the zoo.

 

As the number of crocodile species threatened with extinction increases, the role of Crocodiles of the World and other captive breeding programs becomes more important; some animals owe their very existence to the care provided by zoos.

 

At Crocodiles of the World we are proud of our continued breeding successes with rare and endangered animals in our care. However we receive no subsidies to offset the high costs of the specialist care and sanctuary we provide, so it is only through the interest and support offered by our visitors and adopters that we are able to continue to look after the incredible animals we have here.

Animal Adoption as a Gift

For a perfect gift why not adopt an animal as a present? Perfect for Birthdays, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mothering Sunday, Easter or Anniversaries.

 

You can choose from 14 species and not only will you help to care for your chosen animal, but you will also receive a special name adoption pack!

Conditions

  • Free zoo admission applies to normal zoo opening hours and not special events.
