Royal Zoological Society of Scotland
Established in 1909 the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland has been working to promote the awareness and conservation of rare and endangered animals for over 100 years. In its original charter RZSS had the principle objective 'To promote, facilitate and encourage the study of zoology and kindred subjects and to foster and develop amongst the people with an interest in and knowledge of animal life.' The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland has continued to uphold the principle through our work in education, and conservation. RZSS operates Edinburgh Zoo near the city centre of Scotland's Capital and the Highland Wildlife Park near Kingussie. We also support a wide variety of research and conservation projects here in the UK and around the world.
