Did you know that “Frog Day” is the world’s largest day of amphibian education and conservation action? Here at the Greater Vancouver Zoo we have been helping with the Oregon Spotted Frogs since they became endangered in 1999…so frogs are near and dear to our heart. And here's a video that one of our valued animal care staff took on our conservation efforts of the frogs in our care.
Join us for talks about saving the Oregon Spotted Frog by Wildlife Biologist “Andrea Gielens” at 11:30 am & 1:30 pm at the conservation project area. Learn about the Oregon Spotted Frogs and how you can save the frogs in the wild!
Come out and celebrate Earth Day with us! There will be lots of activities to learn more about how you can help the environment and save the animals too!
Bring along your old cell phone for recycling and you can help save wildlife habitats in Central Africa as well as help prevent the dangers from discarded cell phones and save money as well!
Purchase 1 admission at the regular price and get the 2nd admission of equal or lesser value for free with every cell phone brought in for recycling.
Back in service again for April 1st - just in case you were wondering after we made the major change on March 31st of completely changing the direction of the train, we had to go through another inspection from the BC Safety Authority to make sure everything was safe before we can operate again. That means not only checking everything but going through some safety runs around the track with the train today (see the photos below...very cool stuff). We received the green light so we are good to go...
Thanks so much for your patience while we go through this much needed maintenance. And our peak season begins April 1st and so our hours are now extended - we are now open from 9 am - 7 pm. Enjoy the sunny spring weather we are having!!
