A message from Liz, our penguin keeper:  

"Over one hundred penguins live here at Penguin’s Rock in Edinburgh Zoo. Right now, it’s breeding season. Although we’ve given the penguins lots of pebbles to choose from, watch out for some of the gentoos trying to steal the best ones for their own nest! 

“You may even spot Kevin, our naughtiest penguin, who has been banned from the penguin parade for biting people! 

Did you know that, as a charity, we receive no government funding for our animals? While the zoo is closed, it is a very challenging time. 

“It costs £130 a day to feed our penguin colony. Thanks to everyone who has already donated to help our penguins- it’s such a wonderful thing to do and makes a big difference. Please can you help our animals like Kevin in June by giving an online donation today. Or you can donate by text. 

Please watch your gift in action as they are fed in front of you every day. 

Yes I can help!

Thank you from Liz at Penguins Rock!

Edinburgh Zoo being closed means we have no visitor income to help pay our food bill.  We are a charity and receive no government funding. Over 100 penguins live here at Penguins Rock and our cameras are helping you get close to them even though we aren’t open. The good news is you can help them by giving a donation.

Just text ZOO plus the amount you’d like to donate to 70085 (e.g. ZOO10 to donate £10)*.

Please continue to enjoy watching our animals – we hope to see you soon. In the meantime, take the best of care!

 

Help feed the animals you love now!

*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

Support Edinburgh Zoo's Survival Fund

I want to help
1000700.jpg

Can you support our survival fund?

The animals at Edinburgh Zoo are loved by so many people. But their survival here and in the wild now 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 without any government support to help us recover from Covid-19, 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.

We have no one else to turn to. If you can, please help your zoo survive long into the future by giving a donation today.
