We visited and attended many of the educational talks including bird of prey show, grizzly bear, and black bear. The girls there have a lot of knowledge about their animals. Most of the animals are orphaned or injured, so normally would be in the wild if not for their predicaments. Lots of neat things to look at, but the place... More

Great to be like kids getting excited about seeing animals we do not have in our country. Loved the bears and the raccoons are so funny to watch they are very clever.

We picked a cooler, cloudy day to visit the park as at this time of year our weather can get extremely hot. I guess the animals liked the cooler weather as wel because most of them were out of the pens & wandering around. Including the twin grizzlies! The raptor show was fantastic and very well presented.

We nearly didn't make the trio based on some of the reviews, but we were so glad we did! We are mom & 3 kids (ages 5, 8 & 10). We arrived at 1030 in the heat & managed to cover the left side of the wildlife park (not a zoo people!) before going to the Birds of Prey show... More

Took our two granddaughters, ages 5 & 6 and had a very enjoyable day. Glad to know that most animals are rescue cases and all looked very healthy and content. Seeing a Grizzly dig a den was fascinating and showed their power. The raptor demo was very good. It is good to have a place like this that focuses on... More

If we haven't been to the Vancouver zoo, I would give a higher rating. Aside from the bears, there are not many animals in there. The admission fees are a bit expensive. It only take 2 hours for us to finish touring the whole facility.The animals in there are pretty skinny and it's depressing to see that.

This was a side stop recommended by the staff at Mt. Robson Info Centre and we loved it! The bears were amazing to see so close up and the kids loved the train ride that took you all around the park!

This was an interesting and fun tour. Got to see a lot if different animals. One thing I would totally recommend is to go early in the day, as in the afternoon It can get way too hot to stand around out there.
