Edinburgh Zoo and Highland Wildlife Park are now closed until further notice. This follows the latest government advice on coronavirus and social distancing. 

We know our fantastic members and visitors have appreciated having outdoor spaces to roam and view our magnificent animals over recent days but this is the right decision at this difficult time. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! 

Thank you to our amazing teams at both parks who will continue to give our wonderful animals all the care they need. 

We will of course keep you up to date with our latest news, including any animal births, and continue to highlight our many conservation projects here in Scotland and around the world. 

Remember you can tune in to our live webcams to see what Dharma, Yang Guang, Tanami and our penguins are getting up to at edinburghzoo.org.uk/webcams

To thank our members, we are extending all memberships by an additional month free of charge. Please email membership@rzss.org.uk if you are a member and do not wish to receive this extra month.
