A message from Lorna, one of our koala keepers:  

"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 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." 

It’s impossible to overstate the impact of the Covid-19 closure on Edinburgh Zoo. Being closed cuts 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.

Can you support Tanami and the rest of the animals with a donation today?

Yes I can help

Thank you from Lorna and Tanami

Our cameras are helping you get up close to our amazing animals and you can help them by donating.
