Mother’s Day Adoptions

Celebrate the matriarch in your life

They are the people who nurtured us, guided us, and shaped us to be who we are today. They are our mothers, stepmothers, sisters, aunts, teachers, and friends. We celebrate them every day, but especially on Mother’s Day.

Celebrate your mother or maternal figure by gifting them the adoption of an orphaned elephant, rhino, or giraffe. The rescued animals in our care have lost their own mothers, but with your help, we can ensure they grow up knowing the love of a family.

For a donation of just US$50, your loved one will receive the following as part of their gifted adoption:

Personalised adoption certificate emailed on your chosen start day

Monthly orphans updates and Keepers' Diaries

Downloadable monthly watercolour by Angela Sheldrick

Exclusive access to online content, including photos and video

Through our unique adoption program, your loved one will become part of our Orphans' Project, which exists to rescue, rehabilitate, and rewild orphaned elephants, rhinos, and other creatures.

Perfect for last-minute gifters, our digital adoption can be delivered instantly or on a date of your choosing. Your recipient will receive an enchanting welcome pack via email, along with monthly updates about their orphan. It is a gift that continues to spread joy throughout the year.
