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.

Discovery Wildlife Park

Innisfail, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:


For over 28 years, Discovery Wildlife Park has provided "forever" homes for orphaned or unwanted wildlife. Animals that are not releasable have, historically been euthanized - DWP gives them a second chance at life by allowing them to live out their lives comfortably. Daily animal presentations allow them to educate their visitors on conservation issues and the challenges that are faced by wildlife every day. They also provide awareness of what everyone can do to help alleviate these stresses. Visitors love the opportunity to have face-to-face encounters with resident animals! An opportunity not to be missed! Also on site is a 63 stall campground with 30 and 50 amp power. Washrooms, showers and even a stocked trout pond for campers' fishing pleasure! Book an evening animal encounter with big cats, bears or a walk with the wolves. Camping packages are " build your own" with a camping site, propane fire pit, admission to the Park, evening encounters, and much more! New this year are cabin and RV rentals for visitors who wish to camp, but don't have a trailer or tent of their own. Visitors may also have their photo taken with our Bears or our Beaver - a great way to remember their visit to the Park!
