Canadian Accredited Zoo Partners In Wildlife Conservation Present Weekly Wildlife Wonders All Summer Long!


TORONTO, ON: Your Toronto Zoo is excited to be presenting a summer long series of wildlife conservation stories shared by accredited Zoo partners across Canada. Every Thursday beginning July 8th to August 26th tune in to accredited Zoo partner content throughout the day to learn about how these partners in wildlife conservation are working hard to help save and protect some of our planet’s most endangered wildlife.

With our planet facing a global crisis in wildlife survival with nearly one million species facing extinction due to habitat loss, human activity and climate change, it has never been more important to be connected to nature and to bring people together to effect positive change.

“It shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone by now that my perspective on helping wildlife and wild spaces is simple – conservation is a team sport – and we need more players,” says Dolf DeJong, CEO, Toronto Zoo. “This strong partnership with our fellow accredited Canadian zoos is the essence of positioning conservation as a team sport. This is an exciting opportunity to for us to grow our efforts to connect people, animals and conservation science to fight extinction,” he added
