Adopt a Koala for Your Valentine

See also

The Dallas Zoo is offering a very unique Valentine's Day gift idea for your loved one – the chance to adopt a Koala! Symbolically adopting one of the zoo's furry friends, Kobi and Tekin, will help support animal care at the zoo and alleviate the $65,000 cost of feeding the two Koalas fresh eucalyptus for one year.

In return, the marsupial package comes complete with a small plush koala and a photo suitable for framing, along with an adoption certificate, a zookeeper’s report, a subscription to Zoo publications, and two admission tickets to the zoo.

For the cost of $50 ($40 for DZS members), you can give this one-of-a-kind gift making your Valentine, Kobi, and Tekin very happy. Upon gift receipt, make plans to visit these cuddly creatures in the Koala Walkabout presented by Kimberly-Clark Corporation.

If there are other animals that tug at your Valentine’s heartstrings more than koalas, there are kangaroos, impalas, lions, and many more animals up for adoption as well. Go online to place your order or call 469.554.7449 for details.
