Adopt an Asian Short-Clawed Otter

Adopting an otter at Newquay Zoo will make a real contribution to the daily care of our otters 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.

Out of all 13 species, Asian short-clawed otters are the smallest, measuring less than one metre when fully grown. Habitat destruction, water pollution and over-fishing has led to the rapid decline in numbers of wild Asian short-clawed otters. They are now classed as a Vulnerable species.

We are home to a breeding group of otters which contribute towards the captive population in zoological collections.


How do I adopt an otter?

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.
