Can you feed the animals you love during lockdown?

We hope you enjoy watching Yang Guang, one of Edinburgh Zoo's famous giant pandas. The past several months have been tough for your much-loved zoo. Covid-19 is the biggest threat our organisation has faced in its long history and our future is now at risk.

Every month we need thousand of pounds just to feed and care for the animals you love, including our giant pandas. We can’t and won’t compromise on the care of our animals.

If you can, please help to look after Yang Guang and the rest of the incredible animals you love with a donation today.

🐼 £10 could treat Yang Guang to a slice of his favourite panda cake, made to a secret recipe

🐼 £55 could buy him a lunch. Did you know he can eat up to 100kg of bamboo every single day? Watch your gift in action as he’s fed in front of you on camera.
