Edinburgh Zoo could lose its giant pandas next year due to coronavirus financial impact

Edinburgh Zoo could be on the verge of returning its famous giant pandas to China next year. The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, which runs the zoo alongside the Highland Wildlife Park, says that it lost around £2m last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Both attractions were forced to close for three months due to the restrictions in place. Now the organisation is looking for ways to balance the books - and the pandas could be near the top at the list of things set to go.
