Give the gift of Fota this Christmas


If you are looking for a Christmas gift idea with a difference, take a look at Fota Wildlife Park's, annual membership packages and adopt an animal scheme.

The membership packages which start at €100 are a great gift idea for family and friends this Christmas, as they really are gifts that keep on giving! The membership to Fota Wildlife Park provides free access for 12 months - making it a Christmas present that lasts the whole year!

Members of the Park can see their favourite Fota animals, including Finn the Giraffe, Prancer the Zebra and Chad the Cheetah all year round. The park also provides a full 12 month calendar of events including the monthly African Drumming workshop and Birds of Prey Experience.

In addition, members can avail of free entry to see other animals in a number of other parks and Zoos in Ireland and the UK including, Dublin Zoo, Paignton Zoo, Newquay Zoo, Chester Zoo, Whipsnade Zoo and Living Coasts. Members also receive a Fota News magazine four times a year and receive discounts on the parks gift shop and children's activities.

Fota Wildlife Park's adopt an animal scheme also makes a great Christmas gift, for friends and family and indeed, the adopted animal! The scheme allows people to adopt 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 adopting an animal, the adoption parent will receive news from Fota Wildlife Park, an A4 colour photograph of the animal, a car sticker and a fact sheet on the adopted animal. And as an added bonus, each person who adopts an animal will have their name displayed on the adoption board in Fota Wildlife Park, opposite the Flamingo's!

Fot those of you looking to buy small gifts why not pay a visit to our shop and see an array of animal related gifts.

So for a Christmas gift with a difference, Fota Wildlife Park has plenty of wild ideas!
