A CHANCE to see behind the scenes at Edinburgh Zoo is being offered as part of “Love Your Zoo Week”.

The event celebrates and raises awareness of the conservation, education and research work carried out by zoos.

Edinburgh Zoo and the Highland Wildlife Park will release videos across the week that lift the lid on the experiences of some of the animals and employees within the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, the charity which own the two animal parks.

Now in its second year, the campaign was launched last year by BIAZA, the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

Edinburgh Zoo’s first clip can be seen on its website at www.edinburghzoo.org.uk.

The national Love Your Zoo Week campaign runs until June 10.
