JOIN US FOR CAT WEEK
Sunday August 6, 2017 through Saturday August 12, 2017
11:00am – 4:00pm daily

Join the Toronto Zoo for Cat Week August 6th to August 12th and help us celebrate our feline friends! Worldwide cat populations are rapidly declining due to habitat loss, illegal wildlife trade and human conflict. Help us highlight the Toronto Zoo’s eight cat species with daily keeper talks, fun activities, a silent auction, and important information about protecting species like the big cats. Try to visit all eight of our cat species: African lions, cheetahs, jaguars, Canada lynx, cougars, snow leopards, Sumatran tigers, and clouded leopards, and help them all celebrate Cat Week.
