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? Now 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 want to help now

"Thanks for looking after the animals, give the friendly ones a pat from us!  Hope the money is useful for their food, We'll be following the blogs" - Edinburgh Zoo donor, April 2020

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

Can you help feed the animals in their time of need?

The animals at Edinburgh Zoo are loved by so many people. But while we are closed, they are relying on your donations to feed them. 

Did you know we are a charity and receive no government support?  This means that every day, we need to raise £2,000 just to buy the food the animals need.

The good news is we are already part-way towards our target in June. If you can help, your gift to feed the animals will make such a difference to them.

Thank you for caring for the animals in your zoo and we hope you enjoy seeing them on our live cams.
