Can you support our survival fund? 

Our playful Asiatic lion cubs, Mitaali, Keshari and Kushanu, were born last year to mum Roberta and dad Jayendra. The trio love to explore outside and are getting bigger and more adventurous every day. 

We’re sure you will enjoy watching the pride and our other amazing animals on our cameras – and if you can, please help them by giving a donation. 

As a charity, we receive no government funding, but it costs thousands of pounds to feed our animals every month. Though we are delighted that we can welcome visitors back through our gates, it's still a very difficult time. 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 your favourite zoo animals. You can take 'pride' in knowing you've supported incredible animals here and across the globe 🦁🌍

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.
