Mother’s Day

Sunday, May 12, 2019

What better way to celebrate a day all about Moms than visiting with some of Toronto Zoo’s newest Mothers. Whether it’s Pygmy hippo Kindia and her daughter Penelope in the African Rainforest Pavilion, Tisa the Red river hog and her two  hoglets, Ginger & Hazel, or our female endangered African penguin chick in the African Savanna - they are all sure to add something special to the day.  Not only are these new additions to the Toronto Zoo family cute, but  they are significant in the preservation of their species to help ensure they continue on for generations to come!
