Yang Guang and Tian Tian have been in Scotland for over 10 years, we understand that they have played a part in many people's lives, from lining the streets of Corstorphine on their arrival to special trips to visit them. We want to make sure as many people as possible get the opportunity to say farewell.
At RZSS, we are working with different communities and organisations to help identify and reduce barriers to accessing nature through outreach and on site at our zoos. Last year we worked with over 40 community groups throughout Scotland, helping to support connections with their audiences and our sites. It is exciting to be able to continue and expand this work in 2023, welcoming people to our outreach sessions, exploring our sites and discovering more amazing animals.
Other opportunities to be involved in our giant farewell will be announced throughout the coming months.
We believe it is vital for more people from more diverse backgrounds to be able to access nature if we hope to save wildlife and empower communities to better protect, value and love the world around us.
If you are part of a group that you believe would benefit from this support, or know of any organisations that might be able to help fund or otherwise support this work, please get in touch with our community team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RZSS is a wildlife conservation charity and every purchase helps to save wildlife and empower people in Scotland and around the world to protect, value and love nature. Find out more at rzss.org.uk/about.
