Toronto Zoo plans Orangutan Awareness Weekend


Saturday, August 22 & Sunday, August 23, 2015 
 
11:00am to 4:00pm, Indo-Malaya Pavilion
 
Did you know that the Toronto Zoo is the only Canadian zoo to have Sumatran orangutans?

The Toronto Zoo is dedicating a full weekend to the Sumatran orangutan to help bring awareness to this critically endangered animal. Visitors will learn why the wild population of orangutans are experiencing habitat loss of 80% and get the opportunity to check out our special orangutan enrichment interpretive station, artifacts, and even artwork painted by one of our very creative orangutans. Plus, join us for the special Orangutan Keeper Talk at 1:00 pm daily and find out how YOU can commit to conservation efforts to help the extremely Endangered Sumatran orangutans at home and abroad.

Beat The Heat This Weekend At Splash Island
 
 
If the summer heat is too "un-bearable", why not visit Splash Island? Our two-acre splash pad is the perfect destination for a hot summer day!  After exploring over 5,000 animals, cool off with the kids amongst waterslides, water-spouting animals, waterfalls and tipping buckets.
 
Splash Island is open daily from 10:30am to 6:00pm and is added value with your Zoo admission!
