Adopt a Meerkat



Did you know that the Meerkat is a member of the Mongoose family?


These lovable little critters are a fan favourite at our Zoo, and are well known for standing at attention on their back legs. In the wild, members of the group will do this as a way of being ‘on-guard’ whilst other members hunt for food. In fact, our Meerkats can be seen exhibiting this behaviour often throughout the day.


The Meerkat can be found in groups of up to 50 members! They are extremely well coordinated and, despite often being found in a dangerous desert habitat, are great at not only surviving - but thriving! You can adopt one of the Meerkats here at Hertfordshire Zoo for only £49 per year!


What better way to mark a special occasion than by adopting a Meerkat for a friend or a loved one. The perfect gift for those who adore these loveable animals. Adopt today.


All Adoptees will receive a presentation pack including:


  • Personalised adoption certificate
  • Photograph of chosen animal species
  • Keyring and pen
  • Photo magnet
  • Soft toy of your chosen animal species
  • Your name will be added to the adoption board of honour until your Adoption expiry date. (please note this can take up to 4 weeks from the start date)

Delivery Notes: This may take slightly longer than usual, we do advise to order your Adoption Pack a few weeks prior to your Start Date to avoid disappointment. UK shipping only.
