Edinburgh Zoo is delighted to acknowledge the continued recognition and support for its education programme from the City of Edinburgh Council. We had been told our grant was likely to be cut by 75 per cent this year, which was reflected in your report on our education programme (March 21).
But, at the council meeting last month, we were awarded a full grant of just under pound;38,000 towards our education provision. This enables us to continue to offer a wide range of learning experiences for diverse audiences, and maintain our high standards of educational provision for all.
