Adopt a Lion

Adopting an African lion at Newquay Zoo will make a real contribution to the care of our big cats 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.

The African lion is classified as a Vulnerable species, as a result of illegal poaching, habitat destruction and human encroachment on their territory in the wild.

We are currently home to three siblings, male Boss and females Semira and Amahle. The group were born back in August 2012 and came to Newquay Zoo back in 2014 from Longleat Safari Park.


How do I adopt an African lion?

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.
