Be a Gift Aid Visitor!

Did you know that the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, which owns Edinburgh Zoo, is a charity?

RZSS is a charity devoted to the conservation of endangered species and their habitats. All tickets include an optional donation of 10% which helps us to run various conservation projects.  By choosing to make this donation, you really help us.

The government supports charities like us with a scheme called Gift Aid, which allows us to claim back the tax on your donation.  It is worth 25p in the pound to us if you are a UK taxpayer and is at no extra cost to you, so by donating today you ensure that we receive up to 3 times your original donation from the government.
