The Toronto Zoo

While a visit to the Toronto Zoo isn’t possible at this time, a virtual campout at the zoo sounds like just the fix your animal fans need right now!


What a way to celebrate the long weekend!


Kick off the May long weekend with a FREE virtual ‘campout’ at the Toronto Zoo! Join Dolf DeJong, Toronto Zoo CEO, Jeff Yurek, Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks for Ontario, Toronto Zoo staff and some very special animal visitors as they host the first virtual ‘campout’ of the season. Join them LIVE on the Toronto Zoo YouTube Channel where you will be joined by some animal friends, and they will introduce you to some of their WILD neighbours and things YOU can do to help protect them and their wild spaces! Plus, what would a campout be without a campfire and a story or song to share! Virtual campers will be encouraged to either build a homemade fort in your living room, or join from your backyard during this fun and interactive experience. Don’t forget to prepare for the evening with our camping ‘checklist’.
