Leave a legacy

Leave a legacy to RZSSYour legacy - our future

For over 100 years, generations of families have enjoyed time together at RZSS Edinburgh Zoo and RZSS Highland Wildlife Park. Millions of people have formed lifelong memories of our wonderful animals, with many going on to forge futures in conservation.

At RZSS, our legacy is as important to us as yours is to you.

Our ambition is to captivate and enthral people from an early age so they develop a keen and active interest in the conservation of our planet; safeguarding its many wonderful species from extinction and ultimately connecting them to nature. By leaving RZSS a gift in your will, you can help us make this happen.

Through leaving a gift in your will, you can help safeguard a future for vulnerable species both in Scotland and across the planet. A gift from you can help us direct funds to where they’re needed most – whether that is working to secure a future for the threatened Scottish wildcat, or to inspiring a generation of children to make room for nature.

Each year, legacy income is worth £2 billion to the UK. With almost 87% of us having a will, the difference we can make is boundless.


Be part of our future

Your legacy will mean that future generations can experience the same lifelong memories that sparked your own personal passion for wildlife.
