Join the family by adopting your favourite animal

Did you know you can become a Zoo Parent by adopting your favourite animal? There’s no better way to show your support for the wild!

You can even adopt an animal as a gift for the animal lover in your life - it's unique, easy and doesn't even need to be wrapped.

Your adoption funds Taronga’s work, including research and education programs focusing on endangered species in Australia and around the world, as well as assisting with the conservation, breeding and preservation of wild animals and their habitats.
