The Toronto Zoo has been voted time and time again as the best zoo in Canada.
View beautiful Polar Bears in the Tundra Trek exhibit. Also see snow geese, Arctic fox, wolves, reindeer, and a snowy owl.
Gorilla Rainforest Exhibit:
Toronto zoo’s family of Western lowland gorillas is thriving. Nassir, born Sept 2009 is the latest addition to the family. Ngozi was brought to Toronto to breed with Little Nassir’s father Charles in an effort to support an endangered species.
Cats of the African Savanna:
Cheetahs are critically endangered in the wild. The Toronto Zoo, however has managed to successfully breed them — helping to improve the breed's chance of survival.
Cheetahs can reach a maximum short distance speed of 80-112 km/h. Check with zoo staff to see if there are any new babies when you visit.
Great Barrier Reef Exhibit:
The centerpiece of the new Great Barrier Reef Exhibit is a giant tank filled with 1.000 reef fish such as Bamboo Shark, parrot fish and angel fish. Also new to the zoo are moon jelly fish, Australian sea horse, and live coral reefs.
The zoo’s discovery area for kids has three areas:
1. Splash Island, an exciting .8 hectare (2 acre) waterplay area, treats children of all ages to rollicking good fun amidst a variety of Canada's wetlands.
2. Kids Zoo is a dynamic, interactive children's wildlife experience geared towards all ages, but especially towards kids nine and under.
3. Waterside Theater hosts family events. Grab a seat in this spectacular outdoor theatre and treat your family to a fun times.
