The Calgary Zoo brings new meaning to the term urban jungle.  Hear the roar of the lions, the purr of the tigers, and the growl of the bears in the heart of downtown Calgary with one of the most visited zoos in North America and a leader in wildlife conservation. Free daily programming brings you behind the scenes with zoo keeper talks, creature features, carnivore feedings, and tiger training.

There is nothing like looking up to the height of the giraffes, down to the hippos below the water, or walking amongst hundreds of butterflies. Get wild and spend a day in the urban jungle at the Calgary Zoo.
