SO-31 – Calgary Zoo Conservation
These creatures and many more thrive at the Calgary Zoo, where lasting contributions to species conservation are made every day.
The zoo is renowned for its work in protecting endangered species. Its biologists specialize in the science of species reintroduction and have restored black-footed ferrets to Canada; re-introduced nationally extinct swift foxes; bolstered the greater sage grouse population, and won awards for protecting endangered whooping cranes.
And just this week, the Calgary Zoo also became the place to watch pandas play! The pandas ‘Er Shun’ and ‘Da Mao’ and their cuddly cubs have take up residence in a special habitat designed to meet their every need.
Mr. Speaker, Canada is fortunate to have the experts at the Calgary Zoo contributing to species recovery teams and working toward wildlife conservation, at home and around the world.
