A spokeswoman told The Herald newspaper the notice was particularly relevant at this time of year, when the noise from from low-flying planes and helicopters increases because of visitors to the city's famous festival.
"Edinburgh Zoo has a NoTam in place over its airspace to prevent disturbance to all animals in the collection, yet it is mainly asked in consideration of the breeding penguin colony," she said.
