Support your favourite penguins at Edinburgh Zoo

A message from Liz, our penguin keeper:  

"Over one hundred penguins live here at Penguin’s Rock in Edinburgh Zoo - we're home to Gentoo, King and Rockhopper penguins.  As we approach the end of summer our penguins will begin their annual moult.  At this time the penguins will grow in a whole new layer of feathers and the old feathers will fall off.  This is known as a 'catastrophic' moult in penguins because they can do this in only 2 weeks!'

“You may spot Kevin, our naughtiest penguin, who has a lifetime ban from the penguin parade for pecking at our visitors! 

“It costs £130 a day to feed our penguin colony. Thanks to everyone who has already donated to help our penguins during this difficult time, it’s such a wonderful thing to do and makes a big difference." 

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 our survival fund.

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.
