Adopt a Ring-tailed Lemur

Adopting a ring-tailed lemur at Newquay Zoo will make a real contribution to the daily care of our primates 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.

Newquay Zoo is home to a group of 7 ring-tailed lemurs which can be found on an island down Lake Road. When the weather is warm you can spot them sunbathing – they adopt a yoga-like posture, sitting on their bums and stretching out their legs to warm up their bellies.

With a population of between 10,000 and 100,000 left on the island, they are considered an Endangered species, as the forest in which they live is being destroyed by slash and burn agriculture, charcoal production and mining for gemstones and minerals. Ring-tailed lemurs are found in all five of the protected areas within their range. Zoos worldwide contribute to a captive breeding programme for the species, including Newquay Zoo.


How do I adopt a ring-tailed lemur?

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.
