There are so many exciting elements that will form the next phase of the Edmonton Valley Zoo’s transformation. Everything from new habitats and guest viewing areas to the revitalization of the original 1950’s carousel.

With help from the Volunteer Woodcarvers at Fort Edmonton Park, the carousel is getting an uplift with some incredible new features. Instead of the traditional aluminum horse seats, the volunteer woodcarvers are creating new seats and chariots representative of the different endangered animals that are under the care and protection of the Edmonton Valley Zoo.

For a donation, you can sponsor one of these newly hand-carved seats in memory or honour of a loved one, or to celebrate a milestone such as a retirement or company anniversary. For businesses, you can have the opportunity to showcase your sponsorship by having the carousel seat featured in the lobby of your business before the new carousel is operational!

Find your spirit animal – the animal that most represents you, your loved one, or your business – and help revitalize one of Edmonton’s most precious gems.

Donation can be made as a one-time gift or through a monthly donation plan.




It is through today’s zoos that future generations will come to a greater understanding of the human impact on the natural world and be motivated to preserve it and reverse the damage already done. Every donation, big or small, helps us revitalize our beloved Edmonton Valley Zoo! Thank you for caring for the animals, our children's future and the planet!
