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. At Newquay Zoo we offer a home for retired lions, most of whom have been part of conservation breeding programmes at other zoos.

How do I adopt an African Lion?

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 our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes.
