Awesome adoptions

Some of Bristol Zoo and Wild Place’s most famous animal residents are available to adopt – the perfect gift for all animal-loving ladies! 

From Afia, the energetic gorilla and Poppy, the playful penguin, to our sleuth of European brown bears at Wild Place Project, not only are animal adoptions exciting and unique, they also directly support our conservation projects around the globe. So you can make her feel special whilst also helping us save wildlife together!

Adoptions can be made online or over the phone and last for 12 months from the chosen start date. To find out more about animal adoptions, visit Bristol Zoo Gardens or Wild Place Project websites. 

A unique day out with the amazing lady in your life!

Why not spend Mother’s Day discovering amazing animals from around the world? Get the family together for a day out unlike any other!

At Bristol Zoo Gardens, get up close to over 400 animal species, all set within award-winning gardens. Watch lions Sonika and Sahee snuggling up together, check out the adorable baby mouse deer and enjoy daily talks and feeds. Don’t forget to top it all off with tea and a slice of cake at the Hide restaurant.

Or take a walk on the wild side at Wild Place Project! Explore our brand new Bear Wood, home to brown bears, wolverines, wolves and lynxes. Travel back in time to when these animals roamed UK woodlands, and get up close in the glass viewing den.
