Wildlife And Human Life, Together.
Something Big is Coming
The Wilder Institute/Calgary Zoo’s redeveloped ‘Canadian Wilds’ experience is re-opening December 1st, 2023 as ‘Wild Canada’.
Visitors will be taken on a journey through seven of Canada’s ecological zones, celebrating the wonder and diversity of a world where people, animals, and the land are connected.
Cool Nights, Warm Lights
ZOOLIGHTS, presented by Olympia Trust Company, is even brighter this year with over one million lights, close to 250 light figures, and an exciting new arctic aurora theme.
Immerse yourself in a plethora of lights, making for the perfect photo opp, date night, or night out with friends and family.
