Mother’s Day

Why not bring Mom for a day at the Zoo and meet some of our WILD Moms including Tania (two-toed sloth), Olive (babirusa) and Puppe (orangutan)! Join us in the Indo Malaya Pavilion to learn more about M.O.M (Missing Orangutan Mothers). Orangutan mothers and babies have a very close relationship. The mother and offspring bond is actually the most important social bond with orangutans demonstrating how important moms are! Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to bring attention to the plight of these beautiful red apes and to encourage people to learn more about how you can to help protect them!

EdgeWalk

Season 3 starts April 15, 2013

Toronto’s newest and tallest attraction has adventure lovers taking a walk OUTSIDE – around the circumference of the roof! So, do you dare to test your limits and experience the thrill of a lifetime?

EdgeWalk is CN Tower’s most thrilling attraction in its 35 year history, and the first of its kind in North America. It is the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk on a 5 ft (1.5 m) wide ledge encircling the top of the Tower’s main pod, 356m/1168ft (116 storeys) above the ground. Visitors walk in groups of six, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained EdgeWalk guides will encourage participants to push their personal limits, allowing them to lean back over Toronto with nothing but air and breathtaking views of Lake Ontario beneath them.

Visit the EdgeWalk site for more information and to book your adventure today!
