Royal Rhinos Guardian Adoption

In celebration of The King’s Coronation and His Majesty revealing the name of our latest Rhino calf, Dara, we’ve put together a Limited-Edition Adoption Package, so why not commemorate this momentous occasion by offering your support to Dara and her family here at Colchester Zoo!

If you love our Rhinos as much as we do, for just an additional £5.00 you can upgrade our standard Guardian Adoption priced at £65.00 and receive an exclusive plaque for the year!

PLUS make your plaque extra special with a Royal title and become a regal King or Queen, an honourable Prince or Princess, or a noble Lord or Lady!

Our crash of Rhinos can still be adopted within our standard adoption packages without a limited-edition plaque if preferred.

Choose to support Dara and her family at Colchester Zoo and you’ll also receive:

  • A thank you booklet with a brief outline of what the zoo does along with its charity, Action for the Wild.
  • A certificate of adoption with a fact file about Southern White Rhinoceros.
  • An exclusive plaque at the Rhino’s enclosure featuring your name, date of the adoption and a personalised message (60 characters). Due to third-party delays, please allow a minimum of 4 weeks for your plaque to be displayed at your chosen species enclosure.
  • Car Sticker
  • 60th Anniversary Souvenir Book
  • Pin Badge*
  • Lanyard
  • Small soft toy*

*NB: May not represent the adopted species. Items are subject to change.

Please note that it takes at least 48 hours to process an adoption and it is then sent out by post. Please allow sufficient time for this when you place your booking as there can be a delay in delivery of 7-10 working days.

Please read our full adoption T&Cs before making your purchase.

All packages are subject to change and supply chains. Available whilst stocks last. Postage not included, charged at £4.75.
