Sponsor a Meerkat

Sponsoring a meerkat at Newquay Zoo will make a real contribution to the daily care of our meerkats and wildlife conservation work across the world.

Our sponsorship 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.

Meerkats are specially adapted to living in harsh desert conditions, with dark patches around their eyes to reduce the glare of the sun – a bit like sunglasses! Tune into our webcam and enjoy a live look at our mob of mischievous meerkats by clicking here.

They have a widely distributed population and are classed as Least Concern. They currently do not have any major threats, except from natural predators, so at present their wild population remains stable.


How do I sponsor a meerkat?

First choose the sponsorship package that you wish to purchase online from the options below and then go on make your animal selection.

Sponsorships 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 sponsored species moves, we will advise you and you will be given the opportunity to transfer your sponsorship to another species.

Please note that our sponsorship gift packs are only available for UK delivery.
