The kids loved exploring the different ecosystems and animals. Inside the biodome, they gave live monkeys, birds, butterflies, penguins along with different plants and flowers. It was very beautiful.

Four different eco systems with lots of animals and birds. Lots of children there with camp groups and/or their families. The animal care people and guides wandered up to people to point out various animals they might have missed if looking on their own.

This is a great small "zoo" close to Montreal. Location is on Olympic grounds which is easily accessible via the Metro. Penguins are great!
