We have over 130 different species at the zoo, with many animals being some of the most endangered in the world. Our conservation work and the education projects contribute to helping these species and their natural habitats to survive.

We offer a range of unique gifts and experiences, the proceeds from which help us to continue our work at the zoo and in our conservation projects around the globe, giving you the opportunity to do your bit to help!

We’ve compiled a handy guide to our gifts which will delight and surprise on Christmas morning…

For Him: Lion Feeding

Feeding African lions has to be on the top of everyone’s bucket list, right? Well at Newquay Zoo you can do just that! This unique experience makes a perfect ‘wow’ present on Christmas Morning. Your nearest and dearest will be able to get up close (not too close –don’t worry!) and personal with these majestic creatures during feeding time. Our keeper will guide them through the process of feeding and they’ll also get the chance to learn more about their care at the zoo. This experience also includes full access to the zoo for the day, plus a hot drink in Café Lemur and a certificate.

Price: £95 for two people.

For Her: Adopt a Red Panda

Adopting a red panda for your special someone is guaranteed to put you on the nice list! It’s actually possible to adopt any animal at the zoo (not to take home though!) and the money raised goes towards helping us to care for them at the zoo and protect their cousins in the wild. Red Pandas are possible the cutest, but shyest animal that we have at the zoo. As part of the adoption package your special lady will receive an adopter's plaque beside the panda’s enclosure, a photograph of your chosen animal and a free ticket to the Zoo!

Price: £35 for the year. For more info please click here.

For your friend: Be a Keeper for the Day

Being a zoo keeper has to be high on everyone’s childhood dreams- we offer this full day experience to anyone over the age of 15. During the experience they’ll get the chance to really go behind the scenes of the zoo and learn about our breeding programmes and get close to some of the precious animals, insects and birds that we house here. This truly is a unique experience and at the end of the day they will be able to take home a ‘Keeper For A Day’ T-shirt, information packs, a certificate and special memories which will last a lifetime.

Price: £120 per person- includes lunch and day entry into the zoo. For more info please click here.

For the family: Family Zoo Membership
