Largest Zoos in the World
This was the first zoo in the world to house and breed penguins along with being the first in Britain to house koalas and giant pandas. The vision of Edinburgh Zoois to not only cater to tourists but to actively participate in breeding programs of endangered species and promote conservation around the world. One more claim to fame for this zoo is the state of the art chimpanzee enclosure that has been endorsed by experts such as Jane Goodall. Visitors will want to witness the famous penguin parade when penguins are let out of their enclosure and can walk around as they please with their keepers. Daily talks and tours are a large part of the visit to this zoo and there is certainly no shortage of animals to look at and things to learn during a day here.
