Adopt, don’t shop…

If you’ve ever wandered around The Green Planet, then you’ll know what it feels like to want to adopt a lemur or a sloth for a pet. They’re fluffy, cute and oh-so-relatable. Well, your dreams have been answered, because now you can (technically) adopt a sloth.

Dubai’s indoor rainforest, The Green Planet is now offering the chance to adopt one of the adorable occupants of the biodome for an entire year.

The ‘Adopt an Animal’ initiative will help support The Green Planet’s research, educational and animal welfare programs. The tropical rainforest is home to over 3,000 plants and animals across the four levels. The adoption initiative will allow animal lovers to adopt critters including Lemon the sloth, Kendrik the lemur, Amal the slow loris, and many more.

Throughout the program, parents of the animals will be contributing to the conservation and educational initiatives by helping conserve, breed and preserve the species and their natural habitats. It will also assist in the animals’ welfare by donating to the wildlife sanctuary, rehabilitation programs, vet requirements and contribution to the provision of animals’ general needs.

Basically, by adopting one of the adorable creatures you’ll be doing a whole lot of good. Animal adoption could be a special present for any loved one that is obsessed with animals.
