  • A Respectful Experience

    Today, zoos around the world are sanctuaries for the threatened and endangered species we find housed at the Saskatoon Zoo and Forestry Farm. Our zoo is here to provide a vital link between ourselves and the natural world.

    The lessons of a shared earth are understood when we can see, hear, smell a wild creature.

    The friends of the Saskatoon Zoo and Forestry Farm are people like you. Men and women who believe in creating and supporting a respectful 'lived' experience for themselves, for their children and visitors to Saskatoon.

  • Zoo Gala 2012 - Best Year Ever


    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, November, 2012

    Sometimes tough times provide opportunities for great things. In 2011 Zoo Gala had to be cancelled during the event because of dangerous winds. Through the generosity of the Lions Clubs of Saskatoon, generous donors of material and labor, as well as leadership from Supreme Steel, a new permanent 9600 square foot metal events centre with canvas moveable walls and asphalt floor was built to accommodate future Zoo Galas and to allow the Zoo to generate revenue through rentals of the building. 2012 saw over 500 people in attendance to Zoo Gala which generated a record $47,000 for the Saskatoon Zoo Foundation. A huge thank you goes out to our donors and sponsors, led by West Wind Aviation the events title sponsor for sticking with us and making 2012 a memorable year. Zoo Gala 2013 will be held on June 21. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets early as the event will fill up quickly. Call the Zoo Foundation office at 975-2250 to order your tickets as this event will sell out.

  • Saskatoon Zoo Foundation and WestWind Aviation ZOOGALA Interrupted Due to Inclement Weather



    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, June 21, 2011

    The Saskatoon Zoo Foundation thanks everyone who braved the inclement weather to attend the WestWind Aviation ZOOGALA on Friday, June 17th, 2011. It is unfortunate that due to the heavy rain and strong wind this event had to be cancelled within an hour of its start. Fortunately, and thanks to the immediate cooperation of all those in attendance, there was not major damage and no injuries reported during the evacuation of the ZOOGALA premises.

    "Indeed, the weather turned against us on Friday night, but we want to ensure all of our guests, sponsors and volunteers that we will be back next year with the same great event they have come to expect every year"

          assured Randy Moore, Chair of the Saskatoon Zoo Foundation.

    We will be contacting everyone by letter/email that purchased a ticket to ZOOGALA providing information and options for them to consider with regards to their tickets. We will also announce a special prize draw selected from our list of ZOOGALA ticket purchasers.

    Funds derived from special events such as ZOOGALA allow the Zoo Foundation to support capital developments such as the new Kinsmen Grizzly Bear Exhibit, the Lions Club Flight Rehabilitation Conservation Centre, PotashCorp Ark Phase 2, Affinity Learning Centre and the McDonalds Playground.
