Sponsor an Animal

Fota Wildlife Park’s sponsor an animal scheme also makes a great Christmas gift, for friends and family and indeed, the sponsored animal! The scheme which costs €60 allows people to asponsor an animal, directly supporting the animal’s annual food supply and veterinary care budget at Fota – thereby giving two gifts for the price of one!

When sponsoring an animal, the sponsor will receive news from Fota Wildlife Park, an A4 colour photograph of the animal, a token gift and a fact sheet on the adopted animal. And as an added bonus, each person who sponsors an animal will have their name displayed on the adoption board in Fota Wildlife Park, opposite the Flamingo’s!
