How Can You Help?
The Calgary Zoo is committed to providing world-class care for its animals who act as conservation ambassadors, creating engaging educational experiences and conducting vital endangered species research and community-based conservation work around the world. Your support will connect the community to the natural world and inspire visitors to care for it, all while giving hope to endangered species. Below are examples of the projects your donations will support.
The Calgary Zoo has North America’s largest indoor hippo tank. In the wild, tilapia fish swim alongside wild hippos in the Nile River. At the zoo, tilapia help us keep the tank clean by feeding on hippo waste.
