Panda fans given chance to win access for a year

Tian Tian and Yang Guang are due to arrive at the zoo later this year

EDINBURGH Zoo is giving its fans a chance to visit the Giant Pandas free for a whole year.

The Zoo launched its first major Facebook sweepstake yesterday, offering a free family membership to one lucky winner.

The membership gives free entry for two adults and two children (3-15 yrs) to both Edinburgh Zoo and the Highland Wildlife Park in Aviemore for one whole year.  Entrants who are already members can win a free year-long renewal.

Visitors will also be able to visit the host of exotic animals at the attractions.  And once the much anticipated Giant pandas arrive, the lucky winners will also be able to see Tian Tian and Yang Guang as they settle into their new Scottish home.

Other benefits of membership include discounts at the Zoo shop and restaurants, and access to members-only events.

All entrants have to do is ‘like’ the Edinburgh Zoo Facebook page and enter their email address.  For an extra chance of winning, entrants can share the sweepstake on their Facebook wall and invite friends to ‘like’ the Edinburgh Zoo Facebook page.  For every friend that enters, individuals have an increased chance of winning.

The competition will run until November 15th and the lucky winner will be notified within a week after the closing date.
