Join us to become a conservation hero: reintroduce endangered species like whooping cranes to the wild, provide exceptional care to zoo animals and connect over a million people every year with the wonders of nature. Together, we can protect wildlife in our own backyards and across the globe. Because wildlife is important to everyone on our planet. Without it, we could lose everything from the air we breathe to the food on our tables. Your donation to the Calgary Zoo gives hope to endangered species and inspires conservation action. You have the power to be a conservation hero!
The Calgary Zoo has North America’s largest indoor hippo tank. In the wild, tilapia fish swim alongside wild hippos in the Nile River. At the zoo, tilapia help us keep the tank clean by feeding on hippo waste.
