Bring a cheetah 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.
Though once numbering more than 100,000, only 7,500 to 10,000 cheetahs remain on the plains of Africa today. The Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute contributes to cheetah conservation through cheetah reproduction research, but there is still much to be done to ensure the survival of the fastest land animal on earth.
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.
