Wild Times

Did you know the Edmonton Valley Zoo has an official blog?!

Some of you may remember a magazine called “Wild Times” that, until recently, was mailed out to members of the Edmonton Valley Zoo. It was chock-full of zoo news, animal profiles, conservation initiatives, and excellent feature stories.

You’ve probably been thinking, “Hey, I miss that! Where’s my “Wild Times”?”

Well, we have good news…Wild Times has gone online and is now the Official Blog of the Edmonton Valley Zoo! And, it’s available to everyone!

Check it out by following the link below, and be sure to ‘SUBSCRIBE’ to make sure you don’t miss a thing that happens at the zoo!


Lucy, the Valley Zoo’s resident Asian Elephant, is famous for her paintings. Painting was introduced as a simple method of enriching Lucy’s life. Each painting begins with the zookeepers mixing the colours. Lucy uses only non-toxic acrylic paints and chooses the brush she wants to use. She paints as much as she wants with a certain colour, and once she is finished she hands the brush back to her keeper. Each piece is very different, but they all show similar lines, circles and dabs. Lucy definitely has her own style! Here are a few of her latest works of art…


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!
