The Toronto Zoo covers a massive 287 hectares and is home to over 5000 animals representing more than 450 species from around the world. It is actually the third largest zoo in the world.

The Zoo is designed with the goal of providing you with a great viewing experience while maintaining a comfortable and natural habitat for the animals. It is divided into six different geographic regions representing Indo-Malaya, Africa, Canadian Domain, Americas, Tundra Trek and the newly renovated Eurasia Wilds. There are over 10 kilometres of walking trails throughout the exhibits.

Numerous extras are included in your admission at at no extra charge including "daily keeper talks and the Discover Zone where you will find the interactive and educational Kids Zoo, Animal Shows and Splash Island." There are also four rides: The Gorilla Climb Ropes Course, Zoomobile, Conservation Carousel, and the Tundra Air ride.

The Toronto Zoo is a national leader in saving and protecting wildlife to help ensure the rich diversity of nature for generations to come. They work with other accredited zoos throughout the world to help conserve and breed endangered species. Many animals come to the zoo through rescue efforts. In July of 2017 they opened the state-of-the-art Wildlife Health Centre. The 50,000 square foot facility has a public viewing gallery where visitors can get a behind-the-scenes look at the science and research that goes into protecting wildlife.

The Toronto Zoo is open rain or shine to the public every day except Christmas. You can easily spend a full day exploring the Zoo and the surrounding Rouge Park.
