Know Before You Go

  BRING YOUR OWN WHEELS

The Greater Vancouver Zoo is home to over 140 species on 120 acres with 3km of wheelchair accessible paved pathways! We encourage you to bring your own:

  • Bicycles
  • Scooters
  • Rollerblades
  • Skateboards
  • Wagons

For the safety of our animals, motorized recreational equipment (e.g. hoverboards, scooters, powered ride-on toys, etc.) are NOT allowed.

**Motorized wheelchairs are allowed.

  ZOO POLICIES

We kindly request that you follow these easy to follow safety guidelines to make everyone's visit more enjoyable:

  • Please treat all of our animals and plants with respect. Do not yell, run after, pull feathers or throw anything at the animals. Loud behaviour can be stressful to animals, so please be courteous towards them and their surroundings.
  • Respect all barriers for the safety of both the animals and guests at the Zoo.
  • We are a smoke-free environment. Guests who wish to smoke are welcome to have their hand stamped for same day re-entry when leaving our grounds to smoke in the parking area.

We do not allow any feeding of our animals. The diets of all our animals are closely monitored to ensure their optimal health and well being. Picking flowers or other greenery to feed to our animals can be dangerous as some local plants can be toxic.

The best way for the keepers to know if an animal is sick is whether or not it is eating. If visitors feed them, we cannot properly monitor their health, which may also lead to obesity or disease. The animals must not be touched for safety reasons (bites, scratches and disease transfers) and to reduce stress on the animals.

For environmental reasons and to avoid accidental animal ingestion, we do not allow balloons and plastic or aluminum confetti on zoo premises. We also discourage the use of straws whenever possible.

Zoo animals cannot be touched without permission from a zookeeper. This is to ensure everyone's safety and to reduce stress on the animals.

Pets
For the safety of our animals and yours, no outside animals are permitted on Zoo grounds.

Photography/filming
You may be filmed, video-taped or photographed during your visit with us. Entrance on the Greater Vancouver Zoo premises serves as permission for the Greater Vancouver Zoo and guests to use your image.

The commercial use of photographic, video, and film images of the Greater Vancouver Zoo and its animals is strictly prohibited without the written consent of the Zoo. Please contact marketing@gvzoo.com for further information.
