Animal Sponsorships

Sponsoring a Lone Pine animal is the perfect way to support not only our wildlife, but also their wild counterparts.

During these challenging times, your sponsorship will help support all animals within the Lone Pine family, including your chosen individual.

Funds will go towards:
• Providing 24/7 veterinary care
• Maintaining healthy, varied diets and enrichment activities
• Maintaining our three eucalyptus plantations
• Continuing exhibit and environment maintenance and improvements
• Contributing to research and conservation efforts

What is included:
• Digital sponsorship certificate
• Species information sheet, so you can learn all about them
• Bi-monthly updates via e-newsletter about your sponsored animal (for 12 months)
• 24/7 live streaming of your animal’s exhibit via our Youtube webcams

If you wish to visit your animal (once Lone Pine has reopened), you can purchase discount entry tickets via our website (10% off daily passes and 20% off yearly passes). Our wildlife keepers will be more than happy to point out your sponsored animal in their exhibit, so you can say hello.

Upon payment of your sponsorship, you will receive an email confirmation receipt. Our team will then be in touch shortly via email with your sponsorship certificate.
