I'll come to the zoo!, far more interesting than queueing up.

Count me in. Scottish zoos not open yet though. I've never seen the pandas.
Gorillas at a zoo were suffering lockdown blues according to staff. A young one used to interact with child visitors and he misses them.

Maiden Stone,

Sadly Scottish zoos are in deep financial trouble and are facing an existential crisis. Blair Drummond has stated that it is at a financial cliff edge. Our ridiculously over cautious First Minister doesn't seem to be willing to countenance any relaxation despite the very low number of Scottish infections - bear in mind that if even only the drive through part of the safari park was open there would be no risk to anyone and at least there would be some income to help feed the animals.

The intransigence of the Scottish Government is a disgrace and we will all lose so much if the vets have to be called in.

Isn't this what "loss of profit" Insurance is for ?  Or did the management decide to take a risk which has now rebounded on them ?

Given the comments coming from many organisations I presume that their insurance will refuse to pay out. The problem is that many policies exclude the effects of deliberate Government action. This has been the case in a couple of policies that I have had to check out and is probably the industry norm. There is also the question of capacity. The insurance market does not have unlimited funds and almost certainly could not cover the huge scale of losses that we are currently witnessing.
