Animal Encounters

Close encounters they’ll remember for a lifetime

April 4 through September 27

Here's what people are saying about their animal encounters

"We could tell the staff cared deeply about the animals. They watched over them closely explaining behaviour which was very interesting. They also took the time to make sure our six year old grandson experienced everything while being careful to protect him and the animals. Very impressed!"

"The experience more than met our expectations - our grandson loved it!"

"Our facilitators were very enthusiastic, especially Joey!"

Registration for each feeding will open one month prior to the actual date of the session. For example, registration for May 10th’s seal feeding will open on April 10th.
