With all the bad that’s happening in the world right now, we need a little something to cheer us up and at the same time, help do some good.

Animal lovers can now “adopt” an animal at the Singapore Zoo!

The Singapore Zoo, together with Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) have an adoption contribution scheme for Singaporeans who wish to show some love to the animals they love!

Singapore Zoo Animals up for Adoption

The sponsorship scheme by the Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) which was available for companies in the past, is now being extended to individuals – you and I can now be wildlife partners!

We probably cannot have an article on animal adoption without photos of the amazing animals that you can adopt.

So here are the ten species that will be up for adoption.

Brace yourself for cute photos of animals.

African Penguins

Penguins seem to be one of Singaporean’s top favourite species. I assume the “Happy Feet” plays a big part in this.

You can now adopt Ben and Bella, two cute penguin couple who enjoys obstacle course built by their keepers.

Aldabra Giant Tortoise

This very much reminds me of the pet tortoise I used to have when I was young. Unfortunately, I wasn’t the best person to take care of it.

You can adopt Coco the Aldabra Giant Tortoise, who will be in way better hands of her keeper.

Eastern Grey Kangaroo

Rambo is apparently a foodie like most of us. He loves his vegetable pellets and a good chest and neck rub from his keepers.

Malayan Sun Bear

Matahari is a sun bear with a sweet tooth. Her favourite includes honeycomb and grapes.

Sumatran Orangutan

Everyone remembers Ah Meng the Orangutan. Ah Meng Jr is named after her well-loved grandmother.

Pygmy Hippopotamus

Meet Psota the Pygmy Hippopotamus. Her favourite pastime is munching on her favourite tapioca.

Rex Rabbit

Probably one of the cutest in the list of ten animals. Ronnie loves to cuddle and hang out on his keepers’ laps.

California Sea Lion

Sea lions are highly intelligent animals. Pedro, the California Sea Lion, enjoys his favourite food of ice and fishes when he does something intelligent.

Two-toed Sloth

It is funny how this two-toed sloth is named Bunny!

In fact, Bunny is a celebrity on social media! You can follow him on Instagram @bunnythesloth.

Red Ruffed Lemur

Born in the year 2009 in the Singapore Zoo, Bosco loves sunbathing when he is out at his exhibit.


How Will Your Contributions Help?

Your contributions when adopting these animals will go a long way in helping the Singapore Zoo create a better environment for the animals.

Funds raised from this adoption programme will be used for

  • Providing healthcare for animals
  • Dietary programmes of the animals
  • Rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife in Singapore
  • Support research and education programmes across WRS parks
  • Conservation projects to protect threatened speciesย in Singapore and the region
  • Build capacity for improved animal welfare under human care through facilitating training, global networking, intelligence gathering and knowledge transfer
  • Supporting field scientists
  • Enrichment activities and addressing species-specific challenges for animals
  • Awareness building

Plus, how cool is it to say you’re sponsoring a wildlife animal?!
