Zoo Birthday Messages
Over the past seven months the Zoo has been collecting special birthday messages from staff members and key people within the Scottish community as well as global conservation. The birthday messages are a montage of zoo memories, their thoughts about the zoo, what is important about zoos, they role their play in the future of conservation and connecting children with nature.
Speakers include wildlife expert Chris Packham, geologist and broadcaster Prof Iain Stewart, conservation scientist Prof Andrew Balmford, Scottish author Alexander McCall Smith, Scottish entrepreneur and business man Sir Tom Farmer.
