Delhi Zoo director Dharamdeo Rai said Oil India adopted two rhinos for Rs 6 lakh each for a year. A large number of people have shown interest in adopting birds, snakes and even elephants.

People’s involvement will help the zoo raise awareness of the plight of endangered species. Their contribution would help improve existing animal facilities, Rai said.

The adoption cost ranges from Rs 700 per year for a zebra finch bird to Rs 6 lakh per year for a lion, tiger, rhino and elephant. Adopting leopard, hippo and striped hyena would cost Rs 3.6 lakh, Rs 3 lakh and Rs 2.4 lakh respectively. Adopters will receive a membership card once payment has been made. Using the card, the adopter and up to five family members can visit the adopted animal once a month.

The name of the person or the logo of the company will appear in signage in front of the enclosure of the adopted animal. The zoo will also provide a certificate to the adopter at the end of the adoption mandate.
