“In Memory” of Animal Adoptions

If you are looking for a way to remember a loved one, with all of our adoption packages we will gladly include the words “in memory of” on the plaque too. A wonderful way to remember and commemorate their life, the adoption plaque will be located at their favourite animal’s enclosure where you can then visit and spend some tranquil time within the park to remember them.

If you have any specific requirements or would like us to put together a more personalised package, for example if you have asked for donations at the funeral to go towards the “in memory of” adoption, please do get in touch and we would be more than happy to discuss.

To purchase an “in memory of” adoption and help leave a lasting legacy for a loved one, call us on 01227 712111.

As part of your animal adoption terms, we will contact you prior to your adoption expiring to see if you wish to renew for another year. Should you wish not to be contacted about this, please contact us at adoptions@wildwoodtrust.org

As a conservation charity dedicated to preserving British wildlife, all of the money raised goes towards the cost of caring for our animals and our conservation projects to protect some of Britain’s most threatened wildlife.

The ticket is valid for one day for one usage, and is valid for one year. The ticket can be used at either of our parks in Kent or Devon, though we do hope to see you at your adopted animal’s park.

We always do everything that we can to ensure that our animals are on-show everyday, however this is not guaranteed. Our animals could need to be taken off-show due to maintenance work or veterinary visits. We would suggest contacting us prior to your visit so that we can advise of any relevant updates on your adopted animal.

Our animals cannot be exclusively adopted, however we can always advise of any animals that may not be being currently adopted, if you wish to have something a little more special for you.

If your chosen animal sadly dies, we will transfer your adoption to another within the same species. If this is not possible, we will offer you the choice of freezing the adoption until we have another animal of the same species within the park, or we can transfer to another animal for you. Please note that we are unable to refund any part of your adoption as all contributions go towards the upkeep of our animals.

Yes, talks do need to be booked in advance by contacting your local park. At Kent you can call us on 01227 712111 or email adoptions@wildwoodtrust.org and Escot you can call us on 01404 822188 or email visitescot@wildwoodtrust.org. Please try and provide us with two or three dates as not all dates are available due to keeper duties. Once booked, you will need to bring your voucher with you when you visit us.

Towards the end of your adoption year we will contact you by email or post, and if you wish you can choose to adopt your animal for another year, or select another animal. Your support as one of our Wildwood Animal Adopters is really appreciated and makes a huge difference to the future of the animals we care for.

So long as you let us know within 30 days of delivery, you may return the whole order or an individual product in its original packaging and condition for a full refund (less postage fees). Where a refund is claimed, we will process the refund as quickly as possible, but please allow up to 14 days for the credit to reach your account. If you wish to return an item, please contact your local park. Contact us at Kent on 01227 712111 or email adoptions@wildwoodtrust.org, or Escot on 01404 822188 or email visitescot@wildwoodtrust.org.

As our regular adoption packs are designed as gifts, we do offer specific corporate adoptions aimed at organisations. For more information please contact:
