“We’re absolutely delighted to be supporting this initiative from Edinburgh Zoo. It’s a great way to engage people and improve environmental awareness whilst having an element of fun. It particularly resonates with our commitments to the environment and the community. It has been very much welcomed by our people and our Edinburgh team is looking forward to volunteering at the zoo too!”
