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.

THEY’RE SO FLUFFY!
In the cutest news we’ve shared in the past few weeks, two male red panda cubs are now romping through their habitat. These adorable twins were born earlier this spring on June 21, 2016, and like most den animals, spent the first few months of their life bonding with their mom away from the public eye.
Congratulations are in order! Our Devonian Wildlife Conservation Center Supervisor, Rick Wenman, was awarded the prestigious 2016 Zoo and Aquarium Professional Award from Canadian Accredited Zoos and Aquariums.
