Animal sponsorships at Duisburg Zoo

What could be better than getting personally involved with your favourite animal? With your animal sponsorship you support us in our many duties leading to the well-being of our animal residents.

The costs for looking after, caring for and occupying our animal charges vary depending on the species. The donation amount for an animal sponsorship is therefore based on the annual expenses for your favourite animal. You can become an animal sponsor at our zoo for as little as 50 euros.

Be an animal sponsor and enjoy the benefits

  • Individual certificate and life history of the sponsored animal
  • Invitation to the annual animal sponsor day including a guided tour of the zoo
  • Your name on the animal sponsor list at the entrance to the zoo (on request)
  • For sponsorships of €2,600 or more, a plaque with the sponsor's name or company will be officially presented free of charge on request and then displayed at the enclosure of the respective sponsored animal.
  • Animal sponsorship donations are tax-deductible.

Simply fill out our animal sponsorship application and send the application form to Duisburg Zoo by post, fax or e-mail, then transfer the donation amount for your sponsored animal to our account. After receiving the donation, we will create an individual certificate and send it to the donor. For sponsorships over 200 Euros you will automatically receive a donation receipt from us.
