Zoos, Nature Centres & Wildlife Parks Attractions & Entertainment

Breakfast with the penguins, anyone? Visit with a wolfdog? Alberta's zoos, sanctuaries and wildlife parks will happily put the wild back in your life. The Calgary Zoo is western Canada’s largest zoo with an impressive Canadian Wilds exhibit that features grizzly bears, wolves, cougar, moose, bison, bighorn sheep and mountain goats. The Edmonton Valley Zoo lets you get close to 350 different creatures in a variety of habitats. You can see animals in central Alberta that have starred in Hollywood movies, injured birds being cared for at Canada’s largest birds of prey facility in southern Alberta and songbirds being banded at Canada’s most northerly bird observatory.

It’s no wonder why spending the holiday season in Alberta tops bucket lists around the world. Between the retreats of the majestic Rocky Mountains and the vibrant urban holiday spirit, Alberta is home to many winter experiences sure to satisfy.

For over 25 years, DWP 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 us to educate our visitors on conservation issues and the challenges that are face by wildlife everyday. We also provide awareness of what we can do to help alleviate these stresses. Our visitors love the opportunity to have face-to-face encounters with our resident animals! An opportunity not to be missed!
