It is a sad fact that humans are likely to cause the extinction of a quarter of all known species in the next 20 years, unless we work together to protect them now.
Meerkat Adoption: The Aspinall Foundation works in conjunction with Howletts and Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks in the UK to protect rare and endangered animals, and return them to protected areas in the wild.
By adopting a meerkat today you will be giving the species a chance of survival for the future. Just £19.99 will help to protect, feed, keep healthy and enriched through play, the meerkats in care through The Aspinall Foundation around the world.
About the Meerkats:
A type of mongoose native to South Africa, the meerkat (latin: suricata suricatta) is a highly sociable animal that lives in a network of underground burrows. Baby meerkats are known as pups, and groups of meerkats are known as mobs or gangs or clans!
There are 4 meerkats living at Port Lymnpe and providing a great deal of entertainment to park visitors.
The level of interest in the meerkat as a species has been dramatically increased by a popular television ad for insurance comparison site comparethemarket.com, featuring a spoof website called ‘comparethemeerkat.com’, which stars a talking meerkat with a catchphrase of ‘Simples!”
Animal adoptions make wonderful ethical gifts so why not treat a friend or family member to one of the fantastic meerkat adoption boxes and be safe in the knowledge that you have contributed towards helping the meerkat species to survive.
