Pupils from Oxgangs Primary School, Edinburgh, celebrate the 40-year anniversary of their adoption of Edinburgh Zoo’s endangered Sumatran tiger.

Every week for four decades, school pupils have committed to raising funds to help support the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland’s wildlife conservation work with these amazing animals.

To mark the milestone, Jamie, Mia, Imama, Adhvaith, Skye, Alyssa, Jamie and Iona from the school attended an exclusive viewing of the Giant Lanterns of China, the Zoo’s winter event which features a mythical winged tiger among other creatures from Chinese and Scottish myths and legends.

The event highlights the global conservation work of RZSS.
