We all know that saying goodbye is never easy.

Leaving a gift in memory and celebration of a loved one is a meaningful way to pay tribute to and acknowledge the things that were important to them.

Many people are choosing to honour a loved one’s memory by requesting donations to Zoos SA in lieu of flowers. This will make a real difference to animal conservation programs that we undertake both locally and internationally.

Your gift will ensure our endangered species are here for future generations

Many funeral directors will organise donations in memory of your loved one, by contacting us and getting a supply of special donation envelopes that will be available at the funeral. However, we can also send these direct to a family member if preferred.

To arrange donations in memory of a loved one please call (08) 8267 3255 or email


Update: Both Adelaide Zoo and Monarto Safari Park will reopen Monday 23 November. For full details:
