There’s a reason why symbolic adoptions are so popular…because they’re fun to give and receive!

Pick from some of our most popular birds at an adoption level that’s right for you. Keep it for yourself or give it as a gift for someone special. All proceeds from adoption go directly to support animal care efforts at the National Aviary. You can’t go wrong with this unique gift only available at the National Aviary.

Adoption levels start at just $25 and include a personalized letter, adoption certificate, a beautiful photo of the animal you adopted, and a species fact sheet.

You can symbolically adopt a penguin, owl, sloth, flamingo and more. Click the link below to see all available options and get started today!
