Marwell Zoo offers a great adoption scheme to those who want to help some of the world’s endangered animals. By adopting an animal at Marwell Zoo, you’ll be helping Wild Ass not only in the zoo but also across the globe. African Wild Ass can often be found in Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia, on the eastern Horn of Africa and your sponsorship will help the conservation of these animals in their natural habitat.


The conservation team at Marwell Zoo help Wild Ass across the globe, but primarily in Africa. Our conservation efforts focus primarily in England, China and Africa and your adoptions help the continuation of this important work. If you want to help with the work we are doing, then why not consider an adoption package or an animal experience?
