Breakfast with the penguins, anyone? Share a sleepover with a hippopotamus? Alberta's zoos, sanctuaries and wildlife parks will happily put the wild back in your life.

The Calgary Zoo has delighted millions of visitors since 1929. Western Canada's largest zoo ensures every trip is an adventure with over 1,000 animals, 6 acres of botanical gardens, a prehistoric park, playgrounds, and the newest addition - the Penguin Plunge. The Bow Habitat Station welcomes you to the world of water and wetlands and denizens of the deep.

The small and intimate Edmonton Valley Zoo inspires love and learning of animals and nature. The zoo is currently undergoing a major upgrade - keep your eye out for new exhibits coming soon. Take a walk on the wild side at John Janzen Nature Centre's newly renovated facilities. In the new Tegler Centre you can explore natural habitats from the animals' points of view.

In southern Alberta visit Alberta Birds of Prey Centre Next time you visit the Canadian Badlands, be sure to visit Reptile World in Drumheller. Central Alberta is home to special wildlife attractions. Discovery Wildlife Park is a place where animals are film stars. Ellis Bird Farm is both a working farm and a bird sanctuary.
