It was on 22nd July 1913 that Edinburgh Zoo first opened its gates to the public. The zoo was the vision of Edinburgh lawyer Thomas Gillespie who had founded the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) four years earlier, its objective ‘to advance the study of zoology and foster and develop among people an interest in and knowledge of animal life’.

Edinburgh Zoo has come a very long way since the animal-loving lawyer had the vision of filling a park around a stately home with all kinds of exotic animals from every corner of the world. This year is an opportunity for us to look back at what has been achieved in the last hundred years and to look forward to what the future holds for the zoo in the next hundred. Happy birthday, Edinburgh Zoo!
