Master Plan

Inspiring Change

At the Calgary Zoo, we have big plans; plans that will set a new and ambitious path for the future. At the heart of our new master plan, called Inspiring Change, is creating a new standard for exhibit design. The plan also builds on our proud history of saving species and sets out to confirm our place as Canada’s conservation leader.
