Easter at The Toronto Zoo

Friday, March 30 to Monday, April 2, 2018
Free With Zoo Admission

Hop on over to the Toronto Zoo this Easter weekend for some ‘egg-straordinary’ family fun! Bring your camera and have your photo taken with the Easter Bunny on Friday and Saturday or with one of our adorable Hatchimals on Sunday and Monday at the Courtyard Stage. There are two photo sessions which run 10am to 12pm and 1pm to 3pm all weekend. Please note lines will be closed at 2:45pm each day.

Also, visitors can check out our animals and their ‘egg-cellent’ enrichment. Did you know that there are many animals who eat eggs in the wild? For some, this makes up the bulk of their diets while others will opportunistically raid birds’ nests in times of low food availability. For those animals that do not eat eggs, but instead would spend time foraging for other items, we can offer these in various methods to encourage them to display their own unique natural behaviours.  At the Toronto Zoo our Behavioural Husbandry Program strives to provide our animals with a multitude of natural experiences that best mimic their wild counterparts and maintain optimal health and welfare.
