A fond farewell

In memory of His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh

 

HRH Prince Philip was President of ZSL from 1960-1977 and an Honorary Fellow since 1977. 

He had a lifelong passion for wildlife and supported our Zoos, science and conservation work for many years. From opening exhibits, to setting up a prestigious award to encourage young conservationists, we’re so grateful to have had his enthusiasm and support.

He leaves a lasting legacy at ZSL, where his passion for wildlife and conservation will live on. 


Buckingham Palace has requested that charitable donations be considered instead of flowers,  to mark the life of His Royal Highness. If you would like to make a donation in honour of his life-long support of ZSL, and our conservation work, please click the link below:
