The Calgary Zoo is excited to share that we have begun a planned breeding program for Er Shun, our resident female panda! So, what does this mean for the Calgary Zoo and our visitors? Hopefully, panda babies!
The Calgary Zoo is hosting a free Panda Passage Walking Tour! Reserve your tickets to learn more about Panda Passage, Living Building Challenge and sustainable construction.
It might not be the first activity you think of, but chilly winter days like today are one of the best times to visit the zoo! Not only do they make for a relaxing stroll through our park without the busyness of fair-weather crowds, but they also increase the chance of catching some of our cold-weather-loving animals in action! Animals who thrive in cooler weather tend to be more active on chilly days, which means you might see a whole different side of them. That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of the best animals to keep your eye out for when the temperature drops:
It’s a warm fall day and Glenda Misurelli is using a green apple to coax five-month-old moose, Maple, into her habitat at the Calgary Zoo as curious visitors look on. Glenda, a lead keeper in Canadian Wilds, picks up one of the apples and waves it enticingly. Previously disinterested, this seems to get the young moose’s attention. After all, who can resist a crisp apple in the middle of autumn?
How are we feeding our four giant pandas? We’re announcing that Hainan Airlines is the Panda Passage Official Carrier, for the next five years, transporting sustainably and ethically-harvested bamboo from China to Calgary.
