Adopt a Species

Please note: The deadline to place an Adopt a Species order for arrival by Dec. 25 is 4 p.m. EST on Friday, Dec. 15.

Show the animal lover in your life how big your heart is with the gift that supports animal care and conservation. With several gift adopt options—even one that includes a private exhibit tour—we have the perfect present for everyone on your list.

Perfect for conservationists of any age, symbolically adopting a species is a great way to show your support for Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute.
