ADOPT A MEERKAT

Meerkats are small mammals that live in burrows and are native to the harsh environment of the Kalahari Desert. As members of the mongoose family they are renowned for their tenacity and determination when hunting for food.

Threats To Meerkats In The Wild

  • Meerkats weigh less than 1kg and are preyed upon by Jackals and large birds of prey
  • Diseases such as tuberculosis are quite common in wild populations;
  • Humans are encroaching and building on the valuable habitat;
  • Large numbers of animals are taken from the wild and sold as pets.

How You Are Helping

The Aspinall Foundation works tirelessly to protect endangered animals and return them back to protected areas in the wild. Your money will help:

  • Feed and maintain meerkats in the care of conservationists around the world;
  • Keep meerkats in captivity warm and healthy throughout the year allowing them to breed and increase their numbers;
  • Fund research so we can understand more about the species and help ensure they have a bright future.
