How do I adopt a flamingo?

To adopt a flamingo, just click buy now and choose if you’d like a bronze, silver or gold adoption. You can adopt a flamingo for yourself or for someone special and we’ll also send a special gift message along with your flamingo in your adoption pack.

Your flamingo adoption will last for 12 months, and 10% of the profit will help raise money for our conservation partners. So you’ll feel pretty cool about giving this gift too.

Schools and group organisations can also purchase our adoption packages. Please call the office on 01834 812731 to make arrangements.

Fun facts about flamingos

  • The word ‘flamingo’ comes from the Latin and Spanish for ‘fire’ referring of course to their bright pink feathers.
  • A group of flamingos is called a ‘flamboyance’. And that’s rather fabulous.
  • Flamingos filter small food bits in the water using their strange shaped beaks.
  • Flamingos can stand on one leg for up to four hours at a time. But they’re not showing off, they do it to preserve energy and retain heat in their body.
  • The backward bending knee of a flamingo isn’t a knee at all, it’s actually its ankle. Its knee is much higher and hidden underneath its feathers.

Need to know

We only send our adoption packs to addresses with a UK postcode and the cost of postage is included in the price of an adoption.

As a personalised product, animal adoption packs are non-refundable, non-exchangeable and not for resale. If your gift pack arrives damaged, if there is a mistake on the adoption certificate or if the wrong item has been sent, then please email us photos and we’ll send a replacement item.

Our adoptions last 12 months and are for the species rather than a specific, named animal.

You can read our full animal adoption terms and conditions here.
