Are you wild at heart and goat-ally in love - then why not ditch the flowers and chocolates and buy a wild gift for your Valentine this year?

Adopt an otter or goat for your sweetheart from Surrey Wildlife Trust and help us care for the county’s beloved wildlife.

"Every adoption helps us with our vital work to protect some of the rarest species and habitats in Surrey,” said Grace Moran Surrey Wildlife Trust’s Adoptions Co-Ordinator. “It is the perfect gift for nature lovers this Valentine’s Day!”

Adopt an otter or goat for just £25 and your truelove will receive:

• An adorable cuddly toy.
• A personalised adoption certificate.
• A species fact sheet.
• A photograph and sticker.
• Two newsletters a year showing how your support is helping our work.

Otter populations are starting to recover and it’s believed we may soon see these beautiful mammals returning to Surrey. By adopting an otter you will be contributing to our vital conservation work and helping to protect this charismatic animal. 

Every adoption will help us carry out improvements to riverbanks, build artificial otter homes and work with landowners to improve river corridors so that otters can move across the county more easily.

Our work to improve habitat for otters in Surrey was featured on ITV London’s news programme last week! Visit our Facebook page to watch the video:

Adopting a goat will support our conservation grazing programme, which helps manage rare wildlife habitats across the county. Our goats play a crucial role at nature reserves such as Wisley Common and Betchworth Quarry. Each adoption will help us care for our goats through the purchase of fencing materials, medical equipment and winter feed.

So why not make this Valentine’s Day otter-ly and goat-ally unforgettable and share some wild love with your other half? Sign up for your adoption here: Please order your wild gift by Monday February 6th to allow time for delivery.
