Changes in the Canadian Wilds
To create some exciting new habitats and spaces in the Canadian Wilds, we are undergoing a massive construction project which will temporarily shift pathways and move some animals offsite until the construction is completed. Muskox, wood bison, bighorn sheep, woodland caribou, whooping crane, North American river otter, Rocky Mountain goat, and the residents of the Jihad Shibley Rocky Mountain Aviary are currently not viewable. Learn more and view the current Canadian Wilds map here. We’re working hard to minimize impacts while continuing to provide the best possible experience for both our visitors and the animals we love and care for. Thank you for your understanding.
