The Christmas gift you can feel great about giving

With only 40 shopping days left until Christmas, we’ve launched the perfect present for animal lovers.

You can now adopt one of our animals. And you’ll be helping to raise funds for our conservation partners so it’s the gift you can feel great about giving.

There are 12 animals currently available for adoption – penguins, rhinos, giraffes, sloths, meerkats, donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs, owls, zebras and lions.

Priced at £39, the adoption gift packs include a day entry ticket to Folly Farm (worth £13.95 for an adult), an adoption certificate, a fact sheet, a cuddly toy and the adopter’s name displayed on a thank you board at the animal’s enclosure. Adoptions last for a period of 12 months.

Chris Ebsworth, our managing director, said;

“We’re really excited to offer this gift in time for Christmas for anyone who is as mad about animals as we are! The penguins are one of our most popular attractions and so we expect to see lots of interest in adopting them this Christmas. It’s easy to understand their appeal as they have such great personalities and are fascinating to watch.”

Ten per cent of the profit from our adoptions will go to our conservation partners including Pembrokeshire-based Neptune’s Army of Rubbish Cleaners (N.A.R.C.) which carry out underwater dives to help clean up the coastline and protect marine life.

Chris added;

“Folly Farm is a keen supporter of good causes that safeguard the future of threatened animals so adopting an animal is a direct way of supporting the work we do to protect them.”

Our adoptions are a great idea for Christmas presents but you’ll need to purchase them by midnight on the 14th December 2016 to ensure delivery.
