RZSS Education

About Us


The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland

Our mission: To connect people with nature and safeguard threatened species.

Established in 1909 by Edinburgh lawyer Thomas Gillespie, the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) is a registered charity which has been working to promote awareness and conservation of rare and endangered animals for over 100 years. RZSS owns and runs Edinburgh Zoo and Highland Wildlife Park as well as supporting a wide variety of research and conservation projects here in the UK and around the world.

Discovery and Learning

Engaging early years to adult...and every stage in between!

Education has always been recognised as one of the core objectives of RZSS. Our education programme, running over the last four decades, have reached over 1 million people and the development of interpretation at Edinburgh Zoo and Highland Wildlife Park has enabled educational experiences for visitors at both our parks and others in contact with the society.
