Everyone loves animals. Some of us are fortunate enough to share our lives with them as home companions or workmates but even a run of the mill goldfish needs special care and a willing wallet to thrive and be happy. Here at the Isle of Wight Zoo we have the expensive but privileged responsibility of caring for endangered and unwanted wild animals, each one of whom makes up our special 'family’ of individuals.

Our animal adoption scheme is the perfect way for you to be able to  a special bond with a favourite animal. Whether it's a treat for yourself or a gift for a loved one or friend.

Our range of adoption packages has been thoughtfully designed to appeal to all budgets and can be purchased by either individuals through to schools and even corporate groups.  We have taken on board comments and wishes of our trusted adopters and have woven these into a colourful new scheme which we hope will more than satisfy your needs. 

The majority of our animals are available for adoptions such as Zena the white tiger even our ever popular pig Winston, we have adoption packages for all interests! 
Obviously you won't be able to take your adopted animal home with you but you will be happy in the knowledge that you are actively helping to support the care of each and every animal at the zoo. 

If you have any questions regarding our animal adoptions please do now hesitate to contact us.
