Do something amazing for the animals you love

A message from Lorna, one of our koala keepers:  

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

Tanami is one of our Queensland koalas and his hobbies include sleeping and eating. 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.

He eats around 500 grams of eucalyptus every day – that’s the equivalent of a small bag of sugar! It costs £27 a day to feed one of our koalas here at the zoo." 

You can help!

The past year has been difficult for our charity. Our supporters play a vital role in ensuring that we not only survive recent challenges but are able to thrive in the future too.

Help support our animals

Support our work

Watch Lorna's thank you video which was filmed during lockdown. Your incredible support has helped ensure that all our animals were well cared for while our doors were closed. 

Although we are able to welcome visitors again, we still need your help! Did you know that Edinburgh Zoo is a charity? Donations from people like you will not only care for the animals in our zoo but will also support the survival of threatened species around the world. 

You can donate online or by texting ZOO plus the amount you’d like to donate to 70085 (e.g. ZOO10 to donate £10)*


Help care for the animals you love today!

*Texts cost your donation amount plus one standard rate message and you’ll be opting in to hear more about our work and fundraising via telephone and SMS. If you’d like to give but do not wish to receive marketing communications, text ZOONOINFO to 70085.




We would like to say thank you to IndigoVision. Without their expertise and support we would not be able to provide this incredible view of the koalas. If you would like to find out more about IndigoVision and their Intelligent Video Solutions please visit: www.indigovision.com
