There are lots of ways you can help our animals

Sadly, Edinburgh Zoo is closed temporarily, so this is a very challenging time. Our food costs alone are £55,000 every month.

The good news is you can help the animals you love. 

You can give a donation, adopt an animal or join as a member. And you can buy zoo tickets and experiences to enjoy later.

Please help our animals today.
