The Calgary Zoo is more than just a place to see animals. Like accredited zoos and aquariums across the world, we are a force for threatened and endangered wildlife. We are one of the most respected zoos in Canada for wildlife conservation and recognized as a North American leader in the science of species reintroduction. The successful care of endangered species in captivity and in the wild is not easy, but there is no alternative. Through education and exposure, we help our visitors understand and care about the natural world around us. We are proud to provide a place where visitors can learn about protecting the world around them while creating action and developing future conservationists.
