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 sponsor 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! 

To sponsor an animal click on this link here and at the top corner of each animal or plant you can click on the sponsor me button alternatively you can call us on 021 481678.


If you are looking for smaller gifts why not take a visit to the park and see what toys and books we have for sale in our gift shop. With a range of animal soft toys and branded souvenirs, it might be the perfect place for the stocking filler this Christmas without the madness of shopping centre car parks or crazy city streets.

If you want to inquire about what items we have in the shop you can visit any day during park opening hours or call the shop directly on 0214812678 and press 6.
