Adopt a Hoffmann’s Sloth

Adopting a sloth at Newquay Zoo will make a real contribution to the daily care of our sloths and wildlife conservation work across the world.

Our adoption packs make a fantastic gift for animal lovers of any age. Prices start from as little as £35 per year, with three different packs to choose from.

We are home to a pair of Hoffmann’s sloth, Hadar and Roxy. Did you know that sloths actually have very poor eyesight and hearing? They rely almost entirely on their senses of touch and smell to find food.

Habitat destruction and the illegal pet trade are two of the main reasons why the wild population is in rapid decline. Rescue and rehabilitation centres help to care for sloth who have suffered due to the pet trade or the loss of their habitat.


How do I adopt a sloth?

First choose the adoption package that you wish to purchase online from the options below and then go on 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 that our adoption gift packs are only available for UK delivery.
