Adopt an Animal
With more than 750 species from every continent, Hellabrunn Zoo is one of the most species-rich zoos in Europe. You can choose to adopt an animal from a wide variety of species. Or simply ask to adopt your favorite animal!
Animal adoption packs are available for individuals, families or companies and start from as low as € 99. Becoming an animal sponsor is a great way to support us. Your sponsorship helps the zoo and the animal residents as follows:
- It provides a valuable contribution to ensure the animals at Hellabrunn Zoo are well cared for
- It ensures we are able to keep the zoo animals in spacious, habitat-inspired enclosures
- It supports the conservation of species
- It confirms that the welfare of our animals means a lot to you
The minimum period for adopting an animal is one year. The price depends on the species. As a gesture of appreciation for your support you will receive an exclusive reward:

WOULD YOU LIKE TO ADOPT A NEWBORN ANIMAL?
Then our special Newborn Sponsorship is just right for you. All you have to do is register with us and reserve an adoption for the next baby born to your favourite animal. You may even be able to choose a name for the new baby, subject to approval by the zoo management. In addition, if desired, you will be named as the godparent of the newborn baby upon the announcement of the birth on the zoo's Facebook page and in a press release. You will also be invited to press conferences for the newborn baby. Interested?
Newborn Sponsorships start from € 500.
