Toronto Zoo is in the north-east of the city and is the third-largest zoo in the world. The zoo is divided into six zoogeographic regions, servicing most of the continents. As with most zoos, an emphasis on conservation permeates through the information provided and in the running of the zoo.

One thing that Toronto has that many other zoos lack is a great sense of interactivity. Zeller’s discovery zone encompasses the kid’s zoo, which boasts some great interactive features to make it a day that they won’t forget. There’s also Splash Island, a two-acre water play area and teaches the kids about the three states of matter, liquid, gas and solid. The Waterside Theatre provides great entertainment for all the family. The zoo holds special exhibitions sometimes where you get to touch some of the animals you wouldn’t ever get the chance to elsewhere and really engages you a lot more than you would be endlessly looking through glass. There’s a great diversity of species and whether big or small, they are some of the most interesting animals in the world so a trip won’t be a disappointment, although if you’re scared of spiders, best to stay away from the Black Widows exhibition.
