The endangered species need your help!

When you adopt an animal, you are directly supporting the species at Nordens Ark. Your contribution helps pay for food, veterinary care, enclosures and other costs - together we'll make a difference. 

Private individuals, companies, schools, kindergartens and other groups are all welcome to adopt a species. An animal adoption also makes a great gift, perhaps from a workplace or society.

You choose how long you want your adoption to last. Your name will be added to a sign by the animal’s enclosure during the year. You’ll also get a ten per cent discount in our shop and at the hotel when booking a single or double room on production of your membership card. As a thank-you for your contribution, we will also send you a diploma, whatever the size of your gift. You’ll receive a digital ‘stamp’ that you can use on your home pages and in printed material and other media.

There are several levels of sponsorship, so you can select the level and the animal that best suits you. All sponsors are most welcome, and together we will make a difference!
