How is ZSL helping?
We're working to monitor and prevent conflict through the development of new technologies and community outreach initiatives. We're training members of local communities to collect data – including patterns, seasonality and crop preferences – in order to understand crop raiding and minimise it, helping local stakeholders make decisions about crop selection and land use planning.
How does an adoption help the elephants?
By adopting the elephants you are showing your love and support for this beautiful species. The adoption helps fund ZSL’s conservation work in Cameroon, Thailand and worldwide as well as providing care for the elephants at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.

Excellent service and ordering and doing our bit to help with the support of the elephants in the wild and at the zoo.
Lovely gift item for someone to receive. Well presented.

My friend was so pleased with her birthday gift, and knowing that it was helping the Elephants made it more special. Very well presented and packaged, and arrived quickly and safely.
For someone who loves Elephants- as my friend does - this was the perfect gift! Ordering via the zoo website was easy and shipment swift. The tin was full of goodies and keepsakes as well as being of benefit to the zoo. Great value for money!
A lovely, well presented gift for an elephant lover. Had everything you would expect from an adoption pack. Arrived quickly.
by Natalie Warner
My Mum bought this for herself.

We look forward to visiting the animals at the zoo.

A gift that is a little bit different & helps elephants too.
Excellent service, communication & packaging.
This is a great gift for animal lovers and, most importantly, it helps to financially support the ZSL zoos. It comes in a lovely tin making it a really special gift.
by Christina Thornton
I was just expecting a piece of paper/card with the details of the adoption. So was so surprised when I opened the tin to find inside a note book and a leaflet about the elephant. My granddaughter brought this for her elephant mad auntie. A lovely Presentation tin etc. A great present for yourself or someone else.

by Teresa Bowsher
Very nice package. I have brought this for my grandson for Christmas so looking forward to him opening it.
Superfast delivery too
by Jane J
An excellent gift, great value and, essentially, is helping ZSL to continue caring for wildlife. I doubt the low price of the contents of this excellent Sponsorship Tin will even cover the cost of an elephant's breakfast but 'every bit helps'.
Lovely gift! It arrived really quickly and the goodies that came with it were all lovely!
by paul watson

by Diane Rolinson
I arranged for this to be sent direct to my sister-in--law as part of her birthday present as she is adores elephants In spite of the difficulties in posting over over the Christmas period it arived in good time for her birthday today. She was absolutely thrilled and commented particularly on the beautiful way it was presented. A big recommendation from me.
What better Christmas present then to buy both a gift for your Godson whilst also knowing this gift is helping feed and look after the Elephants during this pandemic. One thrilled little boy, parents and beaming Godparents!

This was a present for my 7 yr old granddaughter. She absolutely loves it
by Peter Houghton
Lovely gift, good gift box and prompt service. Disappointed that gift tag was of monkey and not elephant. Also giving name of one of your elephants would encourage recipient to visit the zoo more often.
by Laura Cawood
My 7 year old son loves his adoption pack. He loves elephants a lot and wanted to adopt the species. It comes in a lovely little tin to keep everything together and the little information book etc is great.
by C Kennedy
