Save the World! Take Part in Guardians of the Wild at the Calgary Zoo

Calgary Zoo (Family Fun Calgary)

Are you ready to be a Guardian of the Wild?!

Don’t just visit the zoo this summer. Save the world! Your family is invited to join the Calgary Zoo and become Guardians of the Wild! This new, interactive program can make super-heroes of us all. Designed to help you discover the Calgary Zoo’s conservation action stations, it’s a fun way to take action to protect wildlife and wild habitats around the world. Enhance your zoo experience, protect our planet, and enjoy a great summer day at the zoo!

All you have to do is make a plan to visit the zoo between now and September 3, 2018, to share in the conservation work and pledge to take action in your daily life. There will be 10 action stations situated throughout the park. At each station, you will learn about a pledge you can take to make an impact on the world around you. During your visit to any station, you’ll receive a code you can use to enter to win! The pledges are tied to simple actions that any family can incorporate into their daily lives. These simple actions have a worldwide impact on the animals you love to visit at the Calgary Zoo.

For each station you visit and each pledge you learn about, there will be a unique code. The codes will be on a sign at each Action Station. Collect all 10 codes, or as many as you can, and head to the zoo’s website: Enter the codes to win one of 10 galactic-size prizes, including a trip for 2 to see the giant pandas in China! Remember, the more codes you collect and enter, the more chances you’ll have to win.

Download the map online to plan out your strategy and start pledging! The program runs at the Calgary Zoo from now until September 3 and winners will be contacted by September 4. A full list of the rules and regulations is listed on the website. If you have any question while you are visiting, stop by the zoo’s Plan Your Visit booth near the main north entrance or visit

From pandas to penguins, plan a visit, take a pledge, and become a Guardian of the Wild!
