Pedro the penguin
Adopt Pedro, ZSL Whipsnade Zoo's super chilled out black-footed penguin, who also happens to be a female!
Pedro adores Primrose, one of zoos male's penguins. Its quite hard to tell if penguins are male or female when they are born, as you might have guessed!
Penguins generally mate for life, so it must be true love.
By adopting Pedro for yourself or as a gift, you will be directly supporting ZSL’s conservation work.
Adoption packs are £35
Our adoption packs are beautifully presented and include a certificate, photograph, information on your animal, subscription to our Wild About magazine plus some fun stickers and bookmarks. There is also a free zoo entry ticket so you can come and visit your new friend.
Postage is included in the price.
By purchasing an Animal Adoption pack you are helping to fund ZSL's conservation work.
