Last year, the Calgary Zoo was ravaged by floods that destroyed many of the habitats and killed many of the animals. There has been a lot of work done restoring the habitats and the animals are starting to return. The Trip Advisor description is that there are over 1000 animals in this zoo and I would estimate half that total. The penguin exhibit is nice with several species of penguins sharing the space and the aviary is nice to walk through and see several species of owls. The big cats and bears were nicely visible and the butterfly conservatory was nice. Many of the exhibits were empty. I would return next year to see how it is improved. It was nice but is in need of improvement with more animals. I feel confident that it will be back to its pre-flood glory.
