Animals & Attractions

Welcome to Living Links

As well as being an amazing attraction for our visitors, Edinburgh Zoo's Living Links is a field station and research centre for the study of primates. The centre has been developed in a unique partnership with RZSS and the University of St Andrews.

Living Links houses two species of monkeys: the Brown capuchin and the Common squirrel monkey.  These monkeys are intelligent, social, and lots of fun!

Capuchins rub strong smelling things into their fur. These things may help keep mosquitos and skin parasites at bay. It is also a real social occasion.
