About CALGARY ZOO
The Calgary Zoological Society was officially founded in 1929. Every day, we help our guests learn more about the amazing animals that call the zoo home, and inspire people to care about their wild relatives. Our education team delivers more than 800 school programs to 21,000 students each year focusing on topics ranging from water conservation to saving endangered species. The ultimate goal is to motivate the next generation to take action. The Calgary Zoo conducts innovative research and participates in reintroduction programs that help secure the future of many Canadian endangered species. In addition, conservation initiatives throughout the world are identified and supported. Over the past five years, more than 25 projects were supported in 20 countries and most involve community-based initiatives – helping local people to participate in conservation efforts in their own backyard.
Inspiring and taking action for conservation is what the zoo is all about.
