The day is finally here – Land of Lemurs is officially open! After years of planning, over a year of construction and zoo-wide teamwork, the immersive walkthrough habitat is ready for visitors. It is the first habitat of its kind in Canada, an accomplishment of which we are truly proud. But who exactly will you see when you visit? Meet our lemur species!
We’re less than two weeks away from opening Land of Lemurs! Zoo visitors can finally discover the new habitat for themselves on July 5, 2017. Land of Lemurs is located behind the African lions in Destination Africa, where there used to be an unused area.
So just what have we built in the new space?
It’s the final countdooowwwwwwn! Join the zoo on July 5, 2017 for a spectacular beginning to the Land of Lemurs legacy in Calgary. The brand new walk-through habitat will finally be unveiled to zoo fans and visitors, who will finally be able to experience lemurs in person after months of waiting.
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!
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.
