Adoption Schemes

Why not give an adoption as an unusual gift to family, friends or loved ones?

We have several adoption schemes which help with the work of the Wildlife Trust of South & West Wales.

Animals to adopt include:

All new entrants to the scheme receive the following:

  • introductory letter
  • personalised adoption certificate
  • fact sheet
  • soft toy

Once a year (usually in autumn) you will receive a report on the adopted animal and, where puffins are concerned, we will endeavour to tell you whether or not your puffin has been sighted during the previous year (puffins are ringed as part of our field studies so are easily identifiable).

You can order your adoption on-line from our wildlife shop or download the Application Form for Adoptions and send it to the address below.

The income raised from the adoptions goes towards:

  • funding nationally important conservation projects across south & west Wales
  • lobbying for better legislation to protect all wildlife in south & west Wales
  • preserving and improving wildlife habitats through south & west Wales

Our supporters fund a large amount of the Trust’s work – every single adoption does make a difference!
