Looking back at our 2016 conservation success

Kimani has started holding onto mom Kioja as she moves around the habitat.

2016 was an incredible year – together we marked many conservation successes. As we set our sights on 2017, a look back at some of the highlights:

  • 16 greater sage-grouse eggs hatched at the Animal Health Centre, and the zoo built the first breeding facility in Canada for the species.

We have entered 2017 with a renewed passion for conservation, and a determination to continue to save species. The support of our zoo family, volunteers, visitors and donors means the world to us, and enables us to continue our mission.
