The only outdoor zoo on the island of Montréal is very happy to invite people from the Greater Montréal area to come and discover Québec’s wildlife and, by the same token, the very special animals that live there.
Animals with remarkable stories
At the Ecomuseum Zoo, many animals have one thing in common: injured, orphaned or born under professional human care, they cannot return to the wild and have found a safe and loving permanent home at the zoo. Representing an ethical and responsible family outing choice, the Ecomuseum Zoo places the well-being of its residents at the heart of its mission.
Throughout the summer, visitors will be able to meet Moki, the orphaned white-tailed deer, or Timothea, the three-legged red fox, in a warm and natural environment.
A busy summer program!
From June 25th to August 26th, the Ecomuseum Zoo’s summer programming will facilitate beautiful encounters and impressive discoveries!
Every day at 10:30, 11:30, 13:30, 14:30 and 15:30, visitors are invited to attend special presentations created for the occasion. What does the Arctic fox eat? Does the raccoon hibernate? Why are Québec’s turtles endangered? It’s all to be discovered, every day of the summer!
