AGM Postponement

24/03/2020 in RZSS

Our Annual General Meeting due to be held in May has been postponed as a precautionary measure due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This is in line with the current public health advice to avoid unnecessary travel and social contact. We are sure you will understand this was the best course of action in these very difficult times. Invitations will be sent to members when we are able to arrange a new date.

You may be aware that Edinburgh Zoo and Highland Wildlife Park are closed to members and visitors. Our animals will of course receive all the care they need from our amazing teams while our parks remain closed.

As you are unable to visit – and as a thank you for your continued support – we will extend your membership automatically by one month free of charge. Please email if you are a member and do not wish to receive this extra month.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon! In the meantime, please stay safe.
