HELP SAVE A SPECIES. ADOPT AN OCELOT.

Adopt-an-Ocelot Program

The symbolic adoption of an ocelot helps protect and preserve the ocelot and its habitat. Specifically, funds raised through the Adopt-an-Ocelot program have paid for: 

• Wildlife guzzlers that provide an important source of water to ocelots and other wildlife during drought conditions. 

• Trip cameras, which allow biologists to find out where ocelots are traveling, collect data on their general health and well being, gather information on which ocelots are in the area, as well as help identify individuals. 

• Special events to raise awareness about the ocelot for school programs and special presentations for agencies whose programs may affect the future of ocelots. 

• Important supplies that allow biologists to safely trap ocelots, weigh them, check their reproductive condition, as well monitor their dispersal, behavior and habitat needs. 

 

There are four levels, Kitten, Adult, Family, and Den. Each comes with an information card and adoption certificate as well as gifts for each level. Purchasers who donate 100% for the adoption fee to ocelot conservation will receive the card and certificate only.

 

An Ocelot Adoption makes a great gift for family, friends, or yourself.
