Zoos, Nature Centres & Wildlife Parks Attractions & Entertainment

There’s no guarantee wild animals will show their furry or feathered faces while you’re out, so Alberta’s zoos, sanctuaries and parks can guarantee you get some wild in your life. • Local stars: The Calgary Zoo’s Canadian Wilds exhibit is home to black bears, wolves, caribou, cougar, moose, bison, bighorn sheep and mountain goats, plus owls, whooping cranes and eagles. Beyond the locals, don’t miss the penguins, gorillas, lemurs and tigers. The animal selfie potential here is high. • Only here: Meet very intelligent, slightly wild, and entirely beautiful wolf-dog crossbreeds at the Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary.
