Benefits at the Zoo

We Take Care of Our People Too

Watch your career take flight at the Calgary Zoo! We offer extraordinary benefits like helping to conserve nature and enjoying the rare opportunity to work alongside animals. We also do a great job of looking after the zoo crew with:

  • Competitive compensation package
  • Annual performance bonus
  • Flexible benefits plan, including health-spending account
  • Employer matching RRSP program
  • Competitive vacation and flex days entitlement
  • Discounts on food, beverage and merchandise
  • A complimentary annual pass for you and your immediate family members
  • A fun work environment and the opportunity to work in a park full of wild animals!

The Calgary Zoo has North America’s largest indoor hippo tank. In the wild, tilapia fish swim alongside wild hippos in the Nile River. At the zoo, tilapia help us keep the tank clean by feeding on hippo waste.
