World-renowned zoological institution and conservation charity. Nearly 1,000 animals. Rare/endangered species.
From apex predators like lions and tigers to gargantuan grazers like hippos and giraffes, there’s lots to see and even more to learn, as knowledgeable Interpreters share insider info on the incredible creatures we share our planet with and how they’re cared for. Venture into Panda Passage, immerse yourself in Land of Lemurs, or answer the call of the Canadian Wilds and behold the animals – from the glorious grizzly to the majestic moose – living right here in Calgary's own backyard! While you explore the expansive park and its nearly 1000 creatures, you can take pride in knowing that your visit supports wildlife conservation.
With a comprehensive daily activities schedule, no two visits are the same! Enjoy an abundance of expert-led programming from Caring for Gorillas to Animal Snackers, every day of the week!
Don’t skip the cold months! From January through March, the king penguins waddle their way through the zoo for a daily Penguin Walk (weather depending).
