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 and temporarily suspending the Penguin Parade 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.
