NEW at the Toronto Zoo, visitors can now see our state-of-the-art Wildlife Health Centre with guided tours on Saturdays and Sundays. This new facility is the first of its kind in Canada and further enhances the Toronto Zoo as a centre of excellence in high-quality animal care through veterinary and reproductive sciences, nutritional physiology, and conservation and wildlife research.
You can now catch a glimpse into the work we do behind-the-scenes having access to a viewing gallery featuring the following rooms: Diagnostic Imaging, Treatment, Surgery, Clinical Lab and Endocrinology Lab.
This facility was specially designed to tend to every need of the animals that call the Toronto Zoo home, while also providing the public increased visibility of the work that our Wildlife Health Care team completes every day.
Guided Tours: Join us on Saturdays and Sundays at 12:30 pm for Volunteer-led tours of the viewing gallery. Tours will depart from the Tundra Zoomobile Station.
Guests will access the Wildlife Health Centre (WHC) at the Tundra Zoomobile Station, where they will be escorted to the WHC entry pathway.
