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.
