I want to help

Can you feed the animals you love?

Sadly we have had to close our gates again and can no longer welcome you to Edinburgh Zoo. But there are still over 2,500 animals to care for and it costs over £2,000 each day to make sure they are well fed. 

If you can, please donate today. With your support, our devoted keepers can give every animal in your zoo the best of care, whether your gift feeds bamboo to Yang Guang or eucalyptus to Tanami.
