Father’s Day

Sunday, June 17, 2018

Bring your Dad to meet our Toronto Zoo Dads!

What better way to celebrate a day all about Dads than visiting with three of Toronto Zoo’s newest Fathers. Whether it’s Western lowland gorilla Charles and his new daughter Charlie in the African Rainforest Pavilion, Vishnu the greater one-horned rhino and his new calf Kiran or white African rhino Tom and his new calf Theo, they are all sure to add something special to your Father’s Day.

Not only are these three new additions to the Toronto Zoo family cute they are significant in the preservation of their species. The Western lowland gorilla is under extreme threats due to poaching, disease and habitat loss, greater-one-horned rhino is listed as vulnerable and the white rhino near threatened. These births will help ensure that their species will continue for generations to come.
