Adopt a Cuddly Koala for Your Valentine

Koala-tyDoes your sweetheart have a soft spot for wildlife? This Valentine’s Day, surprise your favorite animal lover with a cuddly koala, a gift that also supports animal care here at the Zoo.

When you adopt a koala for $50, your special someone will receive: a limited-edition Valentine card (see left), small koala plush, a photo suitable for framing, a personalized adoption certificate, and the satisfaction of knowing that their present helps us care for the Zoo’s animals (going toward costs like the $65,000-worth of fresh eucalyptus that our two koalas eat each year).  

KoalaThe Dallas Zoo is the only place you’ll find koalas in Texas and one of only 10 zoos in the nation with these snuggly marsupials. While Gummy and Tekin (pictured right) spend most of their day snoozing on perches in their climate-controlled habitat, they still require a lot of care – and we’ll handle all the cleaning, feeding, and housing for the koalas.  

For local Valentine’s Day delivery, please order by February 9th – or you can pick up your koala adopt package at the Zoo on February 14th. Please call 469.554.7449 or email for more details.

Special Price: $50
