One of my coolest and perhaps more original christmas presents last year was adopting a gorilla. I'm a big fan of gorillas and it was something I'd wanted to do for a while. I didn't actually have a great deal of contact with totallywild.net because the gorilla was adopted for me as a gift. For that reason, I can't tell you how much it costs because I still don't know. I have though checked out the website and seen quite an interesting range of animals on there.
My lowland gorilla goes by the name of Djumbah and seems to be quite the character, strangely enough he doesn't seem to be big on bananas. He's based at the Port Lympne reservation in Kent, the annual fee includes a free visit to the park. They raise money on behalf of re-introducing animals into their original habitat (in this case Djumbah's would be in Gabon) and fund protection of the animals - this includes park guards.
Totallywild.net work with Port Lympne, Howletts and the Aspinall Foundation and do some excellent work, their website is easy to navigate and you can find a range of interesting offers on their, they're also keen to educate schools. There's not quite as much information as I would like to see and I've noticed that the website isn't quite up to scratch yet because some pages seem empty.
If you are interested in adopting wild animals or conversation of any kind then it's certainly a good place to head.
