Become a patron

Every day, one species of animal disappears irretrievably from nature. That is why they require our and your support. Zoos are among those organizations that try to create a lost balance between man and nature. We play an important role in saving endangered species. You can help us with that too.

Anyone can contribute to animal specie as a patron. A company, family, school or sports team, a group of friends, an individual or you can give adoption or patronage to someone as a gift. You can become an adoptive parent of a specific animal, a patron of the species or just contribute to the operation of the zoo.

What will an adoptive parent or patron get?

  • Certificate of patronage or adoption

  • Depending on the amount of the gift, a gift with a zoo motif or a free ticket

  • The adoptive parent or patron, in the case of a gift donated, will be listed in the list of donors in the annual report*

  • In the case of a contribution of CZK 5,000 (and more), a sign with the name or the name or logo of the company is issued to the parent or patron and posted at the enclosure of the sponsored animal***

* If you do not wish to state your name, do not forget to confirm this wish by marking NO in the order form - your gift will be kept anonymous; if not marked, you will automatically be listed as a public donor. If you want your name to appear, do not forget to mark YES in the form.

*** The text on the label and in the annual report is LIMITED to a maximum of 40 characters; the city name does not count to a limited number of characters.


How does patronage or adoption work?

  • You become an adaptive parent / patron for 12 months, which are calculated from the date of crediting the required amount to our account

  • If you are already an adoptive parent or patron and want to contribute further, it is necessary to send a duly completed application for each new period

  • Adoption / patronage of the animal as a Christmas present can be delivered only for applications submitted by 10.12. of the year

  • The adoption / patronage is only symbolic and the payment of the contribution does not give rise to any claim against the animal against the sponsor; the animal cannot be encountered, photographed or in any way removed from the exhibits

  • The gift is a deductible item from the taxes

  • It should be borne in mind that the animal may move to the hinterland or other exhibit during the year, die or move to another zoo; in that case, the adoption is transferred to the nearest similar animal
