Please help to bring giraffes to Scotland’s capital!

In the wild giraffes face threats of habitat loss and illegal poaching. Their population has fallen by more than 30% since the 1980s.

You can build a sanctuary for these majestic animals in the heart of Edinburgh and help save them in the wild.

Donate today to Edinburgh Zoo’s Crowdfunder and you will support the creation of a unique landscape suitable for giraffes at the top of Corstorphine Hill. The giraffe house will provide shelter and care from a dedicated team of keepers and vets. It will also feature carefully designed walkways which will bring you face to face with our new herd.

By donating you will be supporting the future of Edinburgh Zoo, directly contributing to the very foundations of the new enclosure. With a whole host of rewards to choose from (including postcards, giraffe experiences and invitations to the enclosure opening), will you stick your neck out for giraffes?

Your support will also help to save giraffes in the wild. As part of Edinburgh Zoo’s campaign, we will work with conservation partners in Africa to protect the wild population and safeguard them from extinction.

Stick your neck out for giraffes by visiting our crowdfunder page.

There’s lots of ways you can help to bring giraffes to Edinburgh Zoo. For example, this September a dedicated group of supporters took part in the Edinburgh Kiltwalk, and together they raised over £1500! If you’re keen to set up your own challenge for giraffes, that’s fantastic! From bake sales, sponsored walks, dress up days and the likes, there is a whole host of fundraising you could do! You can download our fundraising pack here for some more inspiration, or if you know what you’d like to do already you can set up a donation page on JustGiving. We would love to hear what you have planned and are here to support you in your fundraising!
