The holiday season is officially upon us and, along with hot chocolate, baked goods, and holiday movies, the pursuit of the perfect gifts is surely on your to-do list. Holiday shopping for the people you love can be tough. That’s why we’ve created a Calgary Zoo holiday gift guide! You can find the perfect gift for every animal-lover in your life right here at the Calgary Zoo and support wildlife conservation while you’re at it!
1. The Nurturer
The ZooCare: Adopt a Species program supports the care and feeding of over 1000 animals at the zoo. By adopting an animal as a gift, you can help us feed specially designed diets and create enrichment activities for someone’s favourite animal at the zoo! With different options available, you can find the perfect package for both your loved one and your budget!
2. The Adventurer
What better gift for someone who loves animals than a membership to the Calgary Zoo?
It’s the gift that keeps on giving as members can explore endlessly, visiting the zoo often as they’d like! Plus, Engage and Inspire Members don’t just get free admission all year long, but also special access to our exclusive member mornings, concession and retail discounts and so much more! Let the adventures begin!
3. The Foodie
Panda Breakfast is the perfect gift for any food-lover, from an individual to a whole family! As the only zoo in Canada currently home to giant pandas, the Calgary Zoo is proud to offer a unique experience to enjoy a delicious breakfast and an exclusive viewing of the pandas enjoying their morning routine! Tickets also include admission to the zoo, so after the panda experience is over, stay and explore!
4. The Conscious Consumer
If they would prefer something tangible rather than an experience, look no further than the Calgary Zoo’s gift shops. Inside, you’ll find beautiful and meaningful gifts like organic Shea Butter from the community conservation program we support in Ghana, Snow Leopard Trust products that support snow leopard conservation, and sustainably made products like dish clothes. Stop by our gift shops on your next visit to the zoo and or pop by the gift store near the zoo’s front entrance, it’s worth the special visit.
5. The Indecisive One
