Donate to help save species

As a conservation charity, we rely heavily on our supporters to help us continue our valuable breeding and conservation programs. When you donate to Zoos SA, you’re helping us care for the wonderful animals in our zoos and support our conservation projects in the wild.  We love being able to help save incredible species like the Mainland Tammar Wallaby and the Goodfellow’s Tree Kangaroo.

Our Miracle Joey, Makaia

Makaia is one very special Goodfellow’s Tree Kangaroo. When he was only five weeks old, he lost his mum. He needed a nice warm pouch to grow big and strong in, so Adelaide Zoo tried something that had never been done before… a Yellow-foot Rock-wallaby was found to be his surrogate mum.  Up until now this special breeding technique, known as ‘cross-fostering’, has only been done with closely related wallaby species.

In a world-first for conservation, Makaia survived!  He has made headlines across the world and one countless hears.  This adorable little fellow is the result of our hard work and the expertise of our stellar staff.

Back from the Brink


The South Australian Mainland Tammar Wallaby project is remarkable because we have been able to do what every zoo dreams of – reintroduce an animal that was extinct in the wild back into its natural environment.

The cost of this project has been high, but the price of not acting would have been higher. Over $1 million has been spent already by Zoos SA, and our conservation partners, over more than a decade. We want to ensure that the next part of this story can continue. We need your support to breed more wallabies over the next 12 months and ensure the survival of this species.

Please allow up to 2 weeks to receive your order.

We use Australia Post to deliver our orders.

The rate charged for the shipping of your order is based on the weight of your products, and your location. Before the final checkout page you will be shown what the cost of shipping will be, and you will have a chance to not place your order if you decide not to.

If an item goes on back order we will ship you the part of your order that is in stock. When the item becomes available we will ship you the rest of your order. You will not be charged any additional shipping and handling for the second shipmen
