Leave a gift in your will

You can help ensure a brighter future for wildlife. Whether you have fond memories of visiting our parks or care passionately about protecting endangered species, you can help to create a world where nature is protected, valued and loved.

A gift in your Will costs nothing in your lifetime and ensures a better planet for future generations. Your gift will help protect wildlife and inspire people to care for animals while enjoying Edinburgh Zoo and Highland Wildlife Park for years to come.

By pledging even 1% to wildlife in your Will, you can make a difference to endangered species around the world. Your gift can help bring wildcats in Scotland back from the brink of extinction, fund research with chimpanzees in Uganda or protect giant armadillos and anteaters in Brazil.

An unrestricted gift allows our charity to use your gift wherever the need is greatest at that time. If you would like to make a gift to a specific area of our work, we’d love to discuss this with you further to ensure we can meet your wishes.

When instructing your solicitor, all you need is our charity's name, address and charity number:

Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, 134 Corstorphine Road, Edinburgh, EH12 6TS

Scottish Charity Number: SC004064

If you already have a Will, you can have your solicitor add a codicil, which is an amendment to your wishes.

After you’ve looked after your loved ones, please consider leaving a gift to RZSS in your will.
