The Living Rainforest

Adopt an animal

Animal Adoptions make fantastic gifts for all your friends and family.


Many rainforest animals are threatened by habitat loss and over-exploitation.

Animal adoptions make a real difference by supporting vital education and conservation work. They help to ensure that the animals at The Living Rainforest receive the best care possible. Adoptions also help support our participation in international breeding programmes for threatened species.

You can adopt a sloth, Goeldi’s monkey, pygmy marmoset, Asian water dragon, curassow, stingray, carpet python, or bird eating spider. Stuck for gift ideas for the person who has everything? Animal adoptions make great unusual gifts.

Adoption costs start at £40 a year for an individual sponsorship. We also offer sponsorship for schools and other groups.

Our animal adoption packs include:
