Edinburgh zoo chooses frog logo

Blue poison arrow frog
The striking blue poison arrow frog is to be the new face of Edinburgh Zoo as part of its 58m redevelopment plan.

The tiny creature is the most endangered type of frog in the world and Edinburgh zoo was the first in Europe to breed it back in 1992.

The zoo has unveiled a 20 year plan which will start with a new state-of-the-art chimpanzee house.

The people who run the zoo say they want to turn it into a world-class visitor attraction to be proud of.

Chief executive of The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland said: "We want to give our visitors the experience of a 'good day out' and at the same time inspire them to care about and become involved in the conservation of our threatened habitats."
