City Zoo to Stay in Edinburgh
David Windmill, Chief Executive of the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland which runs Edinburgh Zoo, said:
“There have been several articles in the press recently that infer that Edinburgh Zoo may be moving. I would like to stress that we have no plans to move Edinburgh Zoo out of the city.
Any animal-based visitor attraction in the west of Scotland will be in addition to Edinburgh Zoo and Highland Wildlife Park. As the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, it makes sense to have an attraction in the west of Scotland but we can only proceed with this if investment is in place.
We are currently undertaking a feasibility study with South Lanarkshire Council as there is an area of land near the Clyde which could be suitable for this purpose.”
