Share the Care at Brookfield Zoo

 Featured Creatures

Kecil_STC.jpgKecil Orangutan was born January 11, 2014. He arrived at Brookfield Zoo this past June to be introduced to his surrogate mom, 53-year-old Maggie, after his biological mother showed little interest in caring for him. With Maggie's calm demeanor and prior success as a surrogate, she is able to find room in her life to care for another's offspring. When you adopt Kecil, you'll be helping Brookfield Zoo provide the very best in animal care and nutrition to Kecil and all of Brookfield Zoo's animals. Adopt Kecil Orangutan.

Magic_STC.jpgMagic Bottlenose Dolphin was born October 28, 2013. He was hand-reared by dedicated caregivers when his mom, Spree, did not provide adequate maternal care following his birth. Today, Magic is doing well and has been successfully introduced to another young dolphin, Merlin, and his mom, Tapeko. Adopt Magic Bottlenose Dolphin.

Potoka Giraffe
has a curious, sweet, and laid-back personality, and this one-year-old reticulated giraffe is a favorite among the keeper staff at Habitat Africa! The Savannah. (He seems to think keepers are part of his herd! He enjoys receiving treats and scratches from them.) An adoption of Potoka is the perfect gift for someone in your life with the same personality. Just purchase one of the package options below.
Adopt Potoka Giraffe.
