It’s National Zoo Keeper Week and we’re sharing the love! To recognize the dedication and hard work of our amazing zookeepers, we are posting an interview and video of a keeper each day this week. Today we’re chatting with Jennifer, who has a love of primates.
Spring has sprung in Calgary- and so has Spring Break! The first day of this lovely season was March 21, which means it’s that time of year where #yyc weather will begin to warm, and students are looking for some fun during their time off.
If you’re searching for a unique outing and want to try out some engaging attractions during this time with your kids, look no further than the Calgary Zoo.
We’ve got the fun (and the variety) to keep your family entertained this spring break.
It’s National Zoo Keeper Week and we’re sharing the love! To recognize the dedication and hard work of our amazing zookeepers, we are posting an interview of a keeper each day this week- and this year there’s video! Zookeeper Shannon goes ape for all things gorilla, as their intelligence is both a challenge and a thrill when caring for the species.
A lot has happened recently at the Calgary Zoo- so it’s time for a gorilla update!
It’s been an eventful few months for our gorilla troop. We welcomed new life, with the first gorilla baby born in eight years, and said goodbye to a long-term leader, as silverback Kakinga passed away of age-related heart complications. Older female Zuri required an emergency surgery to treat a severe abdominal infection.
We are deeply saddened to share that silverback gorilla, Kakinga, passed away Saturday night at the age of 37. Often called the zoo’s gentle giant, Kakinga was an exceptional silverback; a kind, loving, protective and diligent leader.
With National Volunteer Week upon us, it’s the perfect time to shine a spotlight on our selfless citizens, and one of our longtime volunteers. Often seen with our tortoise Sheldon, Shirley Servis is an incredible member of the Calgary Zoo volunteer force.
At the Calgary Zoo, we have endless stories to share about our animals, our people and our conservation work. Whether we are inspiring our visitors to love nature, saving species in western Canada from extinction or working with scientists on the other side of the globe, our ultimate goal is simple: to help wildlife and keep it wild.
