Calgary Zoo Visited

We had such a wonderful weekend with friends from South Africa who also live in Canada. Besides the good food–and there was loads of good food–we hung out, caught up, laughed and chatted, and also treated the kids to a day at the zoo.

We’ve heard really good things about Calgary Zoo, but haven’t had the chance to visit until this weekend. I’m glad to report the zoo lives up to the expectations. We walked a good 8km and got to see a great variety of animals in themed enclosures.

I don’t know how you feel about zoos, sometimes I’m unsure about it myself. I don’t like wild animals in cages, but the interest and passion these animals spark in children trains a whole new generation of conservationists. The Calgary zoo also does quite a bit in the name of conservation.

Agree with the practice or not, I do believe it’s positive that my kid wants to do all she can to save the animals she gets to see at the zoo, and I’m sure many other children want to do their part to help for the same reason.

Hits according to Kayla.
Misses according to Kayla.

Have a look at the photos.

I really enjoyed the butterfly enclosure. The plants and butterflies were so beautiful, and it was pretty cool to see the chrysalises and butterflies drying their wings up close.

If you’re ever in Calgary, this is a pretty cool place to visit.
