This year we are trying something new...
Family photos with one of our beautiful Reindeer!
This is an enrichment activity for the Reindeer.
Enrichment provides mental and physical stimulation through various activities.
This also reduces stress on the animal while providing enrichment through positive reinforcement.
How it works:
Everyday at 12:45pm a shuttle bus will transport you to the Reindeer enclosure.
An Elf will bring one of the Reindeer out for you and your family will pose for a quick photo next to the Reindeer.
Cost: It will cost $20 for the photos. (The photos will be held on a USB for pick up within an hour or for pick up next day)
If you wish to explore the zoo Admission will be a separate fee.
Photos are only to be taken by a Greater Vancouver Zoo photographer.
Please note: ANIMAL WELFARE IS OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY
IF THE ANIMAL IS NOT UP TO THIS ACTIVITY YOU ARE NOT GUARANTEED A PHOTO WITH THE REINDEER
(Refunds will be available in the case that the Reindeer does not cooperate)
Your guide will go over strict safety rules before photos are taken.
