First Comes Love

TIME: 6:30pm to 9:00pm

One of life's greatest gifts is the gift of a child, and being a parent is one of the most important and honourable jobs around! The mystery of birth, and parenthood, has been explored throughout the ages, and it's no surprise that many of the most interesting discoveries have come from the animal world.
Join us for an evening of fascinating facts on parenthood in the wild, where you will learn facts such as how the male sea horse, and not the female, carries their young or that giant pandas only have 72 hours in which they can mate!


  • Buffet dinner. Menu
  • Special animal encounter before dinner
  • Interactive & informative presentation
  • Tour of the Reproductive Laboratories, led by our Reproductive Specialist Team

A portion of the proceeds gathered for this program will be directed towards funding the Reproductive programs at the Toronto Zoo.
