Valley Zoo Development Society

The Valley Zoo Development Society (VZDS) is a registered charity and friend of the Edmonton Valley Zoo (EVZ). The VZDS is proud to take a lead role in the EVZ’s stunning transformation into a special place that inspires love and learning of the natural world.

Revitalization of the EVZ

The Edmonton Valley Zoo (EVZ) has undergone a significant transformation, evolving from a 5-acre petting zoo to a 21st-century center of learning, and conservation.

The zoo offers a variety of educational programs and resources for visitors of all ages to learn about the importance of conservation and the protection of endangered species. From hands-on conservation experiences to offering subsidized field trips for schools.

The Valley Zoo Development Society’s mission is to continue the transformation of the Edmonton Valley Zoo into a state-of-the-art animal care, education, and conservation facility.


Impact of Your Support

Children are fascinated by the natural world, especially by animals. By providing them with a fun setting where they can learn about animals & nature, we can create life-long ambassadors for the long-term health of our planet.

“In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we have been taught.”
