Professional Development Day for Educators - October 21st


The Greater Vancouver Zoo has always been a unique resource for educators of all grade levels, from Pre-School to University students. Now with the introduction of the new British Columbia curriculum, even more opportunities are available here. The new curriculum is about providing a greater connection to learning, and we have many resources to assist educators in meeting those learning outcomes at our facility or by having us come to you with our outreach options.

This is a free event and does fill up very quickly as we are limited with space, so please do not delay! To register please click here or for further information about the day, please contact our Education Department at 604.856.6825 ext 26 or email

Event takes place from 9:30 am - 1:30 pm on October 20th.

All educators are free of charge and includes light snacks and refreshments, although we recommend that you bring a bag lunch or money to purchase lunch at our Safari Grill cafe. Please be aware that this is for "educators only" therefore no guests or children will be allowed with this program.

Educators...this section is for you! If you are looking for exciting resources to assist you in meeting your prescribed learning outcomes while learning more about animals, or if you're looking for activities and worksheets to compliment your visit to the zoo; you have come to the right place.

We have the following great resources for you to download all free of charge starting with Kindergarten through the Primary Grades, all you need to do is click on any of following links to get started. Resources for other grade levels are coming soon.
