PERTH Zoo is calling for corporate philanthropists to adopt a zoo animal.

Businesses and individuals can help the zoo continue its vital breeding and reintroduction programs by adopting any of its 1,200 animals on an annual basis.

Tiny new additions to the zoo’s colony of meerkats are a recent example of its breeding program success. Triplets were born six weeks ago to the alpha male and female in the group.

The meerkat kits, not yet sexed, have survived their most vulnerable period and are now out on display in realistic African-style surrounds.

Perth Zoo media liaison officer Debbie Read said there were a number of ways businesses and the wider community could make a contribution to the conservation of wildlife through support of the zoo.

“Many of the world’s animals are teetering on the brink of extinction and some of these species are cared for by Perth Zoo,” Ms Read said.

“For $40 per year for an individual and $120 for a business, adopting an animal can make a difference. The program is tax deductible and adopters receive a certificate of adoption and a quarterly newsletter News Paws.”
