Wildlife Conservation Centre
Restoring Wildlife through Conservation Breeding
The Calgary Zoo’s Wildlife Conservation Centre provides hope to endangered species. The facility is dedicated to breeding endangered species for reintroduction into the wild. Your zoo is building a new state-of-the-art Wildlife Conservation Centre to better address the mounting needs for this type of conservation work here in Canada and around the world.
Brian Keating Conservation Endowment
Saving Species in Canada and Around the World
Real conservation success is not a short-term venture – it takes time and commitment over decades. The Brian Keating Conservation Endowment provides critical long-term funding to support conservation projects in Canada and around the world. The focus is on the reintroduction of endangered species and empowering local communities to benefit from and protect wild species.
Burrowing Owl Recovery Program
Giving Owls a Head Start
Your Calgary Zoo is leading an innovative conservation project to save burrowing owls. This head-starting project involves raising wild young burrowing owls in captivity over their first winter to increase their survival. Fitted with satellite transmitters to track their movement, yearling owls are released the following spring to their Alberta nesting grounds. This project has the potential to benefit the burrowing owl population in Canada by increasing both the survival of young owls and the likelihood that owls will return to their Alberta nesting site every spring―two factors likely influencing their population decline.
Caring for Endangered and At-Risk Species
