Adopt a Sumatran orangutan

By adopting a Sumatran orangutan, you share your love for animals by helping ours receive the best possible care. With over 2,500 mouths to feed, the Zoo’s annual grocery bill is over $500,000—your adopt purchase helps us buy monkey chow, trout, honey, mealworms, and much more!

With a gift of $50*, you will receive:
 
 • An email with a personalized certificate of ADOPTion and species fact sheet.
*The $50 package is only available online. It will only be fulfilled electronically. 

 With a gift of $75 you will receive:
 • A personalized certificate of ADOPTion, a species fact sheet, a species photo and one adorable 6-inch plushie mailed to you or the recipient of your gift.

You will notice that “Behind the Scenes” experiences will no longer be included in the ADOPT program. These opportunities and unforgettable memories will continue to be offered by the Philadelphia Zoo, but in a new and exciting way.
