ABOUT RZSS

Royal Zoological Society of Scotland

Our Mission:

To connect people with nature and safeguard threatened species

 

The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) has protected threatened species in Scotland and around the world for over 100 years. As a leading conservation charity, it connects people to nature and safeguards wildlife across the globe.    

At Edinburgh Zoo and Highland Wildlife Park, diverse and dedicated teams care for almost 3,000 amazing animals and carry out cutting-edge science and research. The wild experts based in RZSS zoos support an incredible range of projects and direct conservation action, from the Highlands of Scotland to the wetlands of Brazil and rainforests of Uganda.     

As our natural environment faces a biodiversity crisis, RZSS is inspiring and empowering communities to help save animals from extinction.
