The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland is a wildlife conservation charity with a bold vision: a world where nature is protected, valued and loved.  

Through our gateways to nature, Edinburgh Zoo and Highland Wildlife Park, we engage with over 700,000 visitors a year and take care of a vast range of rare and endangered animals in safe and stimulating surroundings. We lead innovative conservation programmes around the world and run education outreach programmes that engage with over 30,000 young people each year.

With your support, we can protect species and connect more people and communities with nature. All donations have a lasting impact – whether that be helping to preserve the endangered Scottish Wildcat or funding field work in the Budongo Forest.
