There's no mistaking the ring-tailed lemur, with that iconic stripey tail. Due to threats of habitat destruction and human settlement on their native home of Madagascar, lemurs are now one of the most endangered groups of mammals in the world.

Zoos worldwide contribute to a captive breeding programme for the species, including Newquay Zoo.

How do I adopt an ring-tailed lemur?

First choose the adoption package you wish to purchase from the options below and then 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.
