Locked Zoo: Running Wild

Puzzle your way through Calgary’s largest escape experience on July 15 - Locked Zoo: Running Wild! This fun-filled physically distanced adult’s only event will challenge you to find clues throughout the zoo to save species from a malfunctioning robot in our conservation team. He's encrypted their research! He's giving out misinformation! And he's about to release animals into wild habitats where they don't belong! All proceeds support the Calgary Zoo and wildlife conservation.

Gorillas on the Line

Did you know that some cell phone parts use coltan? Coltan is an ore mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo - where gorillas live. 

The deforestation and mining associated with coltan production has impacted and displaced gorillas, moving them closer to extinction. Recycling and extending the life of electronic devices reduces the demand for coltan mining. When we lessen the demand for coltan, we are helping to protect gorillas in the wild!

Gorillas are on the line - will you help us answer the call?
