Wilder Institute / Calgary Zoo

There’s lots to see and even more to do, at the Wilder Institute/Calgary Zoo! Travel to the polar waters of Penguin Plunge. Hike up through the Rockies to find big horn sheep, caribou, grizzlies, cougars, moose and many more animals who call Canada home. Safari through the Savannah to see a tower of giraffes, prickle of African crested porcupines, and a conspiracy of lemurs. Wade through the Rainforest to find West African dwarf crocodiles, Eastern black-and-white colobus monkeys and Western lowland gorillas. Meander through the tranquility and serenity of the ornamental Dorothy Harvie Gardens then flutter along with the butterflies inside the ENMAX Conservatory. Venture East to see the playful antics of the Japanese macaques and red pandas. Be sure not to miss the majestic Amur tigers and snow leopards while you're there!
