The Greater Vancouver Zoo has partnered up with the internationally acclaimed CAVALIA to offer a great contest on our Facebook page that includes a family package of 4 tickets to see ODYSSEO. .
ODYSSEO is a theatrical experience, an ode to horse and man that marries the
equestrian arts, awe inspiring acrobatics and high-tech theatrical
effects. Set under a 38-meter tall White Big Top, audiences will be transported
around the world as more than 50 horses and an international cast play
and demonstrate their intimate bond. The 1,393 square meter stage
features a real carousel and a magically appearing 302,000-litre lake in
front of a stunning video backdrop the size of three IMAX screens.
Odysseo is a two-hour dream that will move the heart and touch the soul.
It is an evening that the audience will never forget.
The holiday season is a perfect time
to get together with your family and friends…so why not come together to celebrate
it with us!
Just follow the candy cane lane to Santa’s workshop and his elves will be there to show you some holiday crafts, have story time, paint your face up and maybe you will get to see a couple of Santa’s reptile creatures…I think I heard a spiny-tailed lizard might be showing off his stuff and more creatures… but you have to come by to see.And did I forget to tell you – the most important man of the season will also be there “SANTA” himself in his workshop. You will have an opportunity to sit on his lap, tell him everything you want for Christmas and also have your picture taken with him.
Santa’s workshop is open on December 14, 15, 21 and 22 from 10 am – 3 pm.
The Safari Express Christmas Train will also be operating daily from December 14th through January 5th, unless there are extreme weather conditions (excluding December 25th as we will be closed).
later you need to go visit Santa’s reindeer's in the North American section, who
are preparing for their big trip this year.
Guided North American walking tours will also take place from the Cougar enclosure starting December 26 until January 5th. Please check welcome board upon arrival for times.

Our Squirrel Monkeys have more than 1 reason to be excited today! It’s Friday, it’s sunny, and the renovations on their outdoor enclosure are finally complete!
The squirrel monkeys have been off exhibit for the last few weeks, while improvements we’re made to their outdoor enclosure. The old wire mesh on the top part of their enclosure was replaced, the outdoor area was cleaned up, and the various branches for the monkeys to jump around on were replaced with new branches that have different smells that will enhance their experience while they are outside.
At various times throughout the year, we go into all of our animal enclosures to do a major cleanup, make improvements, and change the scenery. Changing the scenery in an enclosure is a form of enrichment that helps keeps our animals mentally stimulated.
Keep your look out for further enhancements that will be made in the next little while to the Squirrel Monkey enclosure. And be sure to stop by and say hi to these silly monkeys this weekend!
