The world's tallest land mammal, thanks to their towering legs and long necks, giraffes are truly majestic animals. We're home to a herd of six Northern giraffes, which are listed as an Endangered species. Northern giraffes are managed in zoos to ensure a healthy breeding population.
 

How do I adopt a Giraffe?

First choose the adoption package you wish to purchase from the options below and then make your animal selection. 

Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because some of our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes. If your adopted species moves, we will advise you and you will be given the opportunity to transfer your adoption to another species.

Please note: Our adoption gift packs are only available for UK delivery.
