Education: the pillar of our mission
Education is the focal point of our mission. We believe strongly that raising awareness among children today about environmental issues will make them better decision makers tomorrow.
Have you ever noticed the twinkle in a child’s eye when he or she encounters an animal for the first time? Each year, more than 35 000 children participate in our educational activities either here at the zoo or in the community through our outreach program.
Help us expand the scope of our program and become an agent of change!
The Ecomuseum Zoo’s education program touches each and every visitors that comes through our doors every year. Whether by participating in an Experience+ activity, through our school outreach program or even a simple visit to the zoo, more than 115 000 visitors learn more about pressing environmental issues.

Québec’s fauna is rich and diverse but do you really know about it? The heart of our mission centers on raising awareness. Learning a little more about the species that surround us will allow the leaders of tomorrow to make better decision with respect to important environmental issues faced by us all.
