Become a Taronga Zoo Parent and help save a species

Did you know you can become a Zoo Parent by adopting one of these amazing animals for a whole year? There's no better way to show your support for the wild!

Animal adoptions also make the perfect gift for friends, family and loved ones. It's a unique gift, and so quick and easy to purchase.

Your adoption will fund Taronga's work with research and education programs, focusing on endangered species in Australia and around the world, as well as assist with the conservation, breeding and preservation of wild animals and their habitats.

Sumatran Tigers

The Sumatran Tiger is critically endangered with only 350 left in the wild. Your adoption will help fund our Wildlife Protection Units in Sumatra to fight illegal logging, mining and poaching in and around the Sumatran Tiger's habitat.
