Summer CAT (Conservation Action Team)

We are delighted to announce that Summer CAT will be running again in July 2017 for children entering P4, P5, P6 or P7 in August 2017. 

Summer CAT is based out of Edinburgh Zoo’s Wildlife Garden Yurt where children take part in a range of activities including planting, building, animal surveying, games, trails, campfires and much more!
