The Edmonton Valley Zoo's decisions are guided by 4 cornerstones:

  1. Stewardship: Meeting the needs of each animal in our care
  2. Conservation: Supporting conservation and the environment
  3. Education: We take our role as educators very seriously, from zoo schools, programs, and day camps, to public interpretation and touch tables
  4. Engagement: Visiting the zoo is an accessible and enjoyable experiences for people of all ages
