Do something amazing for the animals you love

A message from Andrew, our tiger keeper: 

“Lucu is our male Sumatran tiger. You’re most likely to see him in the morning or afternoon. It’s a special moment when you see handsome Lucu up close in person or on our cameras.

Sumatran tigers usually live alone in the wild and are quite shy, so don’t worry if you can’t see him. He’s most likely exploring in the long grass or having a snooze! If he could, we’re sure even Lucu would like to say a huge tiger-sized thank you to everyone who has and continues to donate."

You can help!

The past year has been difficult for our charity. Our supporters play a vital role in ensuring that we not only survive recent challenges but are able to thrive in the future too.

Did you know that Edinburgh Zoo is a charity? Donations from people like you will not only care for the animals in our zoo but will also support the survival of threatened species around the world. 

Please help animals like Lucu by giving an online donation today. Or you can donate by texting ZOO plus the amount you’d like to donate to 70085 (e.g. ZOO5 to donate £5)*.
