Factsheets have been researched using the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as a resource with conservation status of each animal being based on IUCN Red list of Threatened Species.  Some local native species have been listed according to Species At Risk Ontario (SARO) by the Committee on the Status of Species at Risk in Ontario (COSARRO) as protected under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).


What is your favourite animal at the Riverview Park and Zoo?

Wallaby1Help to support an animal friend of your choice through our Animal Adoption program.  Adoption fees will help contribute to animal care, nutrition, and enrichment for the animal that you adopt.

Adoptions last for a one-year term which can be renewed annually.  Special individualized adoption certificates are issued for each adoption and tax receipts are provided for fee amounts.  Adoption fees over $100.00 and over are announced for the duration of the year on the adoption sign located at the centre of the zoo.

Animal Adoptions make great gifts!

Consider making an adoption in someone else's name as a thoughtful birthday or holiday gift. Adoptions are great ways for families, classes and community groups to get involved locally with wildlife conservation.
