Visitor update

Edinburgh Zoo is now closed until further notice. This follows the latest government advice on coronavirus and social distancing. 

This is a very challenging time. Almost all of our income comes from our visitors and our food bill alone is £55,000 every month. 

There are so many ways you can support us from buying your admission tickets now and using them later this year, to making a donation.   

Whichever way you choose to support your zoo, you can rest assured your money to will be put good use right now.
