Animal Care and Habitats
True stewards, staff at the Edmonton Valley Zoo provide the highest quality of care to the more than 350 animals that live at the zoo. The living, breathing, individual animals that live at the zoo are the soul of the facility, situated in the remarkable North Saskatchewan river valley in the heart of Edmonton. Caregivers work together to support the nutritional, medical and behavioural needs of each animal.
A priority of the zoo renewal is to recreate natural habitats for the animals that live at the zoo, enhancing their quality of life and allowing guests to better appreciate the natural world. These efforts support the best of care for the animals and showcase to zoo guests the need to make changes in their own lives to help habitat conservation efforts around the world.
