Changes in the Canadian Wilds
To create some exciting new habitats and spaces in the Canadian Wilds, we are undergoing an extensive construction project which will temporarily shift pathways and move some animals offsite. With some major construction milestones now complete, we are thrilled to be able to temporarily reopen the North Path of the Canadian Wilds. This means that bighorn sheep and Rocky Mountain goats are once again available for viewing. We’re working hard to minimize impacts while providing the best possible experience for our visitors and the animals we love and care for. Thank you for your understanding. Learn more.
