Experience over 900 animals, representing more than 120 species from five continents. You’ll love knowing that every visit helps protect endangered animals, both at the zoo and in the wild. The 120-acre zoo is organized by distinct zones: Canadian Wilds, Destination Africa, Land of Lemurs, Penguin Plunge, Dorothy Harvie Botanical Gardens and ENMAX Conservatory (including the butterfly garden), Eurasia, and Prehistoric Park. Walk with the lemurs from spring to early fall and beginning in May 2018, experience an exclusive, newly constructed Panda Passage habitat that will be home to four giant pandas. The Calgary Zoo is operated by the Calgary Zoological Society, an independent not-for-profit organization that is Alberta’s oldest registered charity and is internationally recognized as one of the top zoos in the world for conservation research.
