Barbara Smith - CEO, RZSS
“Players of People’s Postcode Lottery started their support of RZSS in 2013. We are extremely grateful to have received over £1,700,000 towards our work to date. Players' support helps RZSS run conservation programmes in Scotland as well as in over 20 countries across the world. This has proved invaluable to our extensive education programmes, helping children to learn more about nature and endangered species when they visit RZSS Edinburgh Zoo and RZSS Highland Wildlife Park. Of course, player support also helps us provide for our array of special animals, in a safe and stimulating environment.”
In 2019, support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery is protecting beavers in Argyll, chimpanzees in Uganda and giant armadillos and anteaters in Brazil, as well as providing vital conservation genetics research in our WildGenes laboratory and is connecting people with nature through a range of discovery and learning initiatives at Edinburgh Zoo.
