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.
Wildlife Health Centre - Open Weekends only now through November 25.
Free Volunteer-led guided tours depart from the Tundra Trek Zoomobile Station every half-hour from 10:00 am to 3:30 pm.
Guests will access the Wildlife Health Centre (WHC) at the Tundra Zoomobile Station, where they will be escorted to the WHC entry pathway.
Please note that the Mayan Temple will be closed to the public from Monday 2018-10-01 to Friday 2018-11-09 for construction and the jaguar, flamingos and spider monkeys will not be viewable. We apologize for any inconvenience.
