Animals & Attractions

Pygmy goats, (Capra hircus) are a popular breed of domestic goat, originally from Africa. Edinburgh Zoo is currently home to a herd of pygmy goats, that can been seen just next to the members gate, opposite our Chinese goral.

These goats help tell the story of our support for the Budongo Conservation Field Station in Uganda. We help local communities protect wildlife by giving breeding pairs of pygmy goats to ex-hunters who give up illegal hunting and commit to sustainable farming.
