Avian Influenza Prevention Update - January 2017

05/01/2017 in Edinburgh Zoo

Update 05/01/17

Following the Scottish Government’s announcement of an Avian Influenza Prevention Zone in Scotland on 6 December 2016, RZSS has taken the precaution of closing all walk-through aviaries until the restrictions are lifted. We have also temporarily suspended the Penguin Parade and have put in place increased biosecurity measures in line with Scottish Government recommendations. 

This prevention zone has now been extended until 28 February 2017. Please keep an eye on our website for further updates as this date is subject to change. 

Animal welfare is our number one concern and we will always take precautions to minimise risk to our animals.
