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 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!
