Watch our king penguin chick Edward grow up! From a recently hatched chick, to moulting his ‘baby feathers’ and growing a waterproof adult set, this fluffy penguin put on quite the show for our visitors.
After weeks of voting for the #GreatestCdnAnimal, and featuring each of our fantastic “Eh Team” candidates, it’s finally time to talk about that dam beaver! Is the OG lumberjack still the best representative of Canada’s wildlife?
The race for Canada’s Greatest Animal is heating up! Not physically because, well, Canada, but the battle for a winning candidate is really getting wild. Can’t decide who to vote for? Join us for a debate this Saturday!
Choosing Canada’s Greatest Animal is a tough mountain to climb, but voting for goat could be a sure-footed way to pick a winner!
THANK YOU to the incredible volunteers at the Calgary Zoo! We’re celebrating National Volunteer Week from April 23- 29, 2017 with a series of videos… about you!

The Calgary Zoo is excited about our plan to buy 333 acres of property near Strathmore as the new home for our Wildlife Conservation Centre. The new location gives us room to expand our award-winning reintroduction breeding programs for endangered species.
We’re calling all Calgarians to step up and make a difference just in time for Earth Day on Saturday, April 22. Earth Day reminds us that all people are connected globally, and that our actions can both negatively and positively affect our home. Why not create positives this year and recycle unused electronics? Working with GEEP, Global Electric Electronic Processing, the zoo is hosting a FREE four-day drop off event to collect unused electronics.
