Chinese New Year is just around the corner and we are looking forward to inviting our guests to be here to celebrate the Year of the Pig with us at the Greater Vancouver Zoo! 

According to the Chinese zodiac, pigs are diligent, compassionate, and generous with a great sense of responsibility. We encourage all those born in the Year of the Pig to channel this sense of responsibility in 2019 to support with our local conservation efforts in BC. Consider volunteering with us or taking part in our Adopt an Animal program!

Be here to Enjoy a 15% Discount on Entry

We have a feeling you’re going to like your friends and family members born in the Year of the Pig a little bit more very soon. That’s because all groups who visit us throughout February with at least one individual born in the Year of the Pig will enjoy a 15% discount on entry per person. What are you waiting for!

Years of the Pig are: 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019
