Support Edinburgh Zoo's Survival Fund

I want to help

Can you support our survival fund?

The survival of endangered animals depends on the survival of your zoo.

Donations from thousands of people like you have kept our animals well fed and safe while we were closed and had no visitor income. We were grateful for every gift during those challenging times.

But while we can now welcome you back, our visitor numbers are greatly reduced and the future of your zoo is at risk.

Every month, we need thousands of pounds just to feed and care for the animals you love.

If you can, please help your zoo survive long into the future by giving a donation today.
