Love is in the air at the Calgary Zoo!
The Calgary Zoo will be spreading the love this Valentine’s Day with some extra lovely enrichment!
Enrichment is important for the well-being of our animals every day of the year and special days like Valentine’s Day are the perfect opportunity to show our animals some extra love by providing some special enrichment.
Giant pandas, king penguins, North American river otters and western lowland gorillas will all be receiving special Valentine’s Day enrichment on Thursday, February 14. Here’s the full schedule:
10:30 a.m. | Cequel Lodge
Our love for Kate, Charlotte, and Finnegan, is like no otter, so we’re kicking off the loveliest day of the year in Canadian Wilds with our furry friends.
11 a.m. | Penguin Walk
Dressed in their black and white best, our king penguins will waddle across the zoo (and into your hearts) on Thursday, when they receive some pink and red enrichment during their Penguin Walk.
Noon | Panda Passage
We can bearly contain our love for these four pandas and, while they already have their boo… bamboo that is, we wouldn’t miss the chance to deliver them a Valentine.
1:30 p.m. | TransAlta Rainforest
We’re bananas over our gorilla troop. To show just how much we ‘ape’reciate them, we’ll be delivering some extra special Valentines to the TransAlta rainforest Thursday afternoon.
