Why Adopt?

We need your help!

Crikey! Here at Australia Zoo we are flat out like a lizard drinking caring for over 1,200 gorgeous animals! Australia Zoo receives no ongoing government funding, so animal adoptions through the Adopt an Animal program play a vital role in our ongoing fight for wildlife conservation by providing us with the valuable funds required for our:

  • endangered species breeding programs
  • wildlife sanctuaries
  • essential rehabilitation programs
  • veterinary requirements, and
  • general animal husbandry needs such as food and habitat maintenance.

By adopting one of Australia Zoo’s animals, not only do you have the satisfaction of knowing you are making a difference, but you will also receive gifts of appreciation according to the level of your contribution.

Adoption Packages

  • $50 Bronze Adoption
  • $100 Silver Adoption
  • $250 Gold Adoption
  • $500 Platinum Adoption
  • $10,000 Ultimate Adoption

Most of the inclusions in your adoption pack are online, meaning that your adoption is not only helping one of our animals, but the environment too!

All animal adoptions are a single payment and last for 12 months from the date of purchase. You can choose to renew your adoption after this time and continue your support of our animals and wildlife conservation efforts.

If you would like to contribute more than the specified adoption amounts, you are more than welcome to do so! Please contact us by email or phone to find out more.

* Each guest pass is valid for a single day entry only, to be used within 12 months of adoption purchase. For Gold, Platinum and Ultimate adoptions, guest passes can be used for multiple single day entries for one person, or single day entries for up to the specified amount of people. For Gold or Platinum adoptions, if you are unable to use the included guest passes you can opt to swap the guest passes for a plush toy animal.

^ Subject to availability and must be pre-booked to avoid disappointment. Age, group size and animal restrictions apply; animal encounters are subject to the usual encounter terms and conditions for each animal. Due to health and safety restrictions, saltwater crocodiles are not available for guest encounters; another animal/species will be substituted.

Please note: While all of the animals available for adoption are usually on display at the Zoo and/or participate in encounters, adopting an animal does not guarantee the chance of seeing or meeting them if visiting the Zoo. Animal availability is subject to change; there may be times when animals may be temporarily off display due to unforeseen circumstances, such as veterinary check-ups or habitat maintenance. If booking one of our amazing animal encounters to meet your adoptee, please advise staff of the animal you adopt at the time of booking.

Animal adoptions and associated elements are non-refundable, non-transferable and not redeemable for cash.

It is important to note that adopting an animal does not provide a company or organisation license to promote Australia Zoo across their channels. If you desire to include in advertising and/or collateral including your website, further discussions will be required. If interested, please let us know and we can organise a meeting. Thank you again for your support!

*Please allow up to 3 weeks for the delivery of your gift pack, if applicable.
