Can you support Edinburgh Zoo's Survival Fund 🐨?

A message from Lorna, a koala keeper:  

"Hello everyone! Thank you for watching our koala cam - and thank you to everyone is supporting Edinburgh Zoo by donating!

Tanami is one of our Queensland koalas and his hobbies include eating 500 grams of eucalyptus every day – that’s the equivalent of a small bag of sugar! 

Don’t worry if he doesn’t move much, koalas sleep up to 22 hours a day and prefer to spend time on their own. Tanami is most active in the morning and enjoys roaming around when we put out his breakfast."

It’s impossible to overstate the impact of the Covid-19 closure on Edinburgh Zoo. It cut off 90% of the funds needed by our dedicated keepers and vets to care for thousands of animals. If you can, please consider a donation to support our survival fund, which will help our animals like Tanami, but also support the protection of endangered animals in the wild.

Yes I can help

Support Edinburgh Zoo's Survival Fund

I want to help

Can you support our survival fund?

The survival of endangered animals depends on the survival of your zoo.

Donations from thousands of people like you have kept our animals well fed and safe while we were closed and had no visitor income. We were grateful for every gift during those challenging times.

But while we can now welcome you back, our visitor numbers are greatly reduced and the future of your zoo is at risk.

Every month, we need thousands of pounds just to feed and care for the animals you love.

If you can, please help your zoo survive long into the future by giving a donation today.
