Adorable Ember!

New arrival, Ember, the red panda, has topped the list of DZC’s most adopted animal of 2022!

The one year-old only joined us back in May last year, but has already amassed a legion of fans, resulting in her knocking both of our Linne’s two-toed sloths off the top spot over the festive season!
 
Marketing Manager, Andrea Hales, said: “Despite only being available on our adoption page since September, Ember has proved to be incredibly popular with our visitors and she was the clear favourite for festive gifts.”
 
Other popular individuals included Pumpkin the capybara and Bornean orangutan babies, Jim and Joe, who can be adopted together in a limited edition package.
 
Andrea added: “We’re extremely grateful to everyone who purchases a DZC adoption package, helping us raise thousands of pounds for the zoo’s conservation work.”
 
DZC adoptions start from £41.50, last 12 months and include a personalised certificate, animal photo, zoo admission ticket and gift card. There’s also the chance to upgrade the package to include a personalised plaque outside the animal’s enclosure.
