Did you know that the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland is a charity?
As from 6th April 2006 the government has changed the law on Gift Aid and we can only claim Gift Aid if you make a donation that is 10% more than the entry fee. If you are a UK taxpayer and you make a voluntary donation that is 10% more than the entry fee, the government will give us an extra 28% on top of your donation. This can make a vital difference to attractions like Edinburgh Zoo.
