Symbolically Adopt any animal at The living desert

The Adopt! Program enables us to work more closely with desert animal groups and conservation partners.  On the ground we are developing practical, innovative programs to protect and restore key species and habitats. Around the world we are working to EMPOWER communities AS CONSERVATIONISTS, restore habitat, and increase species.  Here at the zoo your adoption provides funds for animal care and habitat improvement.
