Adopt An Animal

Your adoption supports Audubon’s animals and the dedicated staff who care for them while our doors are closed to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Your symbolic animal adoption will help care for the more than 15,000 animals (including mammals, fish, birds, invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles, and insects) in Audubon's care. Because of your generosity, Audubon's animals enjoy the highest quality care, world-class exhibits and stimulating enrichment activities.

Test your knowledge of:
Sea Otters, Flamingos, Lions, Elephants, Giraffes & African Penguins

Each NOLA Night Sky video covers a different stargazing experience and includes an activity you can do at home. While the planetarium at Audubon Louisiana Nature Center remains closed, we can still enjoy the incredible night sky right from our backyard!
