Special Adopt-An-Animal supporting the Fossey Gorilla Fund


Help protect gorillas in Africa by adopting one at the Dallas Zoo

Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund LogoFor a limited time, you can “adopt” a Dallas Zoo gorilla to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of our conservation partners: the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International. All the proceeds from this special Adopt package will go to support the Fossey Fund and its in-the-field efforts to save wild gorillas. 

The Fossey Fund protects two critically endangered gorilla species in the Democratic Republic of Congo and in Rwanda, Grauer’s and mountain gorillas. Donations support trackers and anti-poaching patrols to prevent extinction of these remarkable animals. The Fossey Fund also works with local community members to train the next generation of conservationists and collaborates with partners (such as the Dallas Zoo) from around the world, ensuring that their efforts will continue. 

In addition to supporting this renowned conservation organization, your symbolic adoption will include a zookeeper’s report on the Dallas Zoo’s gorillas, photo of a Zoo gorilla, a personalized “adoption” certificate, and a special edition gorilla plush (see left). 

Help us honor the Fossey Fund’s 50 years of conservation excellence and fund their work by adopting a gorilla today!

Special Price: $50
