Bring an African lion into your home! The $75 Adopt package includes a stuffed animal and a photo-filled, five-card set, including a postcard, certificate, Build a Zoo Animal card and more. It's easy to show your support for your favorite animal, both here at the Zoo and around the world.
Adopt a Species to give the perfect gift to the conservationist in your life — even if the conservationist is you.
Lion populations have greatly decreased due to habitat loss and human conflict, and the species is considered vulnerable. When you symbolically adopt an animal, you support Friends of the National Zoo in its efforts to help the Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute save species.
