The Toronto Zoo is Canada’s premier zoo with over 5,000 animals!
The zoo is now offering drive-thru visits with its Scenic Safari. See the animals from a whole new perspective using staff-only roads, normally closed to visitors. Take a tour from the comfort of your own car with zookeeper commentary to learn about the animals as you drive along – including the lion caves!
Despite the zoo grounds being closed to the public, the team of zookeepers continue to make sure the animals are safe, happy and healthy. Follow along online to get up close and personal with them without leaving your couch.
Have burning questions for the zookeepers? Ask away during the daily interactive live streams and spend some time learning about the animal of the day from different parts of the zoo.
With a huge range of creatures from around the globe, the Toronto Zoo is divided into seven zoogeographic regions: Indo-Malaya, Africa, the Americas, Australasia, Eurasia, Canadian Domain and the Tundra Trek. Animals can be seen indoors in tropical pavilions and outdoors in naturalistic environments.
Wildlife preservation is a hot topic and the Toronto Zoo offers great tips and research about fighting extinction, like adopting your very own zoo animal!
The Toronto Zoo also participates in many conservation initiatives including captive breeding and reintroduction, habitat and species research and much more.
