The Ecomuseum Zoo

Discovering Québec’s wildlife!
In this page
The Ecomuseum Zoo is the one and only outdoor zoo on the island of Montréal.

Here, you will discover species from Québec exclusively: mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish from our region anxiously await your visit in an institution devoted to their well-being.

The animals that reside at the Ecomuseum Zoo each have a unique story. You will meet, throughout your visit, residents that were orphaned, rehabilitated or born under professional human care. Each living space is a faithful replication of the animal’s natural environment to ensure their comfort and well-being. Take the time to search for them and observe their behavior: you will be nothing less than fascinated!

The Ecomuseum Zoo is a non-profit organization whose mission rests on three guiding pillars: environmental education, wildlife conservation and animal well-being. The zoo is accredited by CAZA-AZAC (Canada’s Accredited Zoos and Aquariums), an organization that ensures excellence in animal care, management, education, research and conservation within all Canada’s accredited zoological institutions.
