JOIN THE ADOPT AN ANIMAL
=====================
Join the family by adopting your favourite animal. Did you know you can become a 'Zoo Parent' by adopting your favourite animal? There’s no better way to show your support for the wild! You can even adopt an animal as a gift for the animal lover in your life - it's unique, easy and doesn't even need to be wrapped.

Your adoption funds Taronga’s work, including research and education programs focusing on endangered species in Australia and around the world, as well as assisting with the conservation, breeding and preservation of wild animals and their habitats. All 'Zoo Parents' receive a personalised adoption certificate, information about the animal you adopt, a year’s subscription to the quarterly Wild Life colour magazine and a monthly e-newsletter about what is happening at the Zoo.

Horizon, River and Jungle level adopters also receive acknowledgement on the Online Gallery and a photo of their adopted animal.
River and Jungle level adopters are also acknowledged on the Zoo Parent Honour Roll in the Zoo grounds.
Jungle level adopters also receive a behind-the-scenes experience.

Choose Your Animal
Sumatran Tigers
The Sumatran tiger is only found naturally in Sumatra, a large island in western Indonesia. It lives anywhere from lowland forests to mountain forest.

Tasmanian Devils
The nocturnal Tasmanian Devil is the largest living carnivorous marsupial. The size of a small dog, it has a stocky body and a large, broad head.

Meerkats
Slender-tailed Meerkats live in an extended family group of up to 30 individuals, including several breeding pairs.

Asian Elephants
Elephants are the largest living land mammal on earth. The elephants at Taronga Zoo are Asian Elephants, a newborn calf may weigh 90-110 kg.

Red Pandas
The Red Panda is a small mammal with a rusty-red coloured body and a striped tail. Cream and red facial markings give it a striking masked look.

Bilbies
Native to Australia, Greater Bilbies are marsupials and are the largest of the bandicoot family.

I was thinking that WE can do this as a group and what we raise will determine whether we get OUR group name mentioned: KATANA AUSTRALIA.
You can read this online at: https://taronga.org.au/adopt-an-animal for further details as to what is required. I have already done this for my wife as a gift and of course it is for a worthy cause. Then the idea came to me that we could do this as a group too. If we reach over $500 we get to have our group name mentioned at the zoo.

A vote will be for everyone to decide which animal to sponsor and the majority will rule. What ever we raise will go to that animal and we become a sponsor.
You can also do this on your own if you wish. Visit the zoo website for more information.

Donate to this forum and in the comments section type 'ZOO' so the money will go to the Sponsor an Animal. Thank you.

I think it would have to be the Meer"Kats" if anything?
