Adoption

Everyone has their favourite animal, and now is your chance to really help and be a part of that animal’s life.

When you adopt one of Dartmoor Zoo’s animals you will be helping to pay for the care, feeding and general well-being of that animal for one year. The costs of running a zoo are enormous and every penny contributed makes a huge difference.

We have two different levels of adoption
