Major Fundraising Campaign 2013-2017

The Ecomuseum Zoo is a non-profit organization operated by the Saint-Lawrence Valley Natural History Society. The zoo is currently in the midst of its very first major fundraising campaign which aims to invest 7 million dollars for animal well-being, for education and to enhance the visitors’ experience.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors and private foundations, we have reached the 60% mark of this ambitious campaign. Get involve and dream big with us today!

Through its efforts to modernize and renew its infrastructure, the Ecomuseum Zoo undertook in  September 2013 its most ambitious fundraising campaign with an objective of raising a total of $7 million dollars over the next five years.

Many essential projects segmented into three main categories will thus be carried out, namely:

Animal well-being

Thanks to the donations received, it is no less than 11 projects centered on the well-being of the animals that have or will have been carried out. For details regarding these projects, please consult the Animal Axis page.


Education has been at the heart of the Ecomuseum Zoo’s mission since its inception. Thanks to our educational program and its activities both on site at the zoo and through our outreach program in the community, we reach over 35 000 children every year to raise awareness of the importance of protecting Québec’s flora and fauna.

Visitor experience

More than 115 000 visitors come to the Ecomuseum Zoo each year. In order to extend the scope of our services and to promote exemplary intendancy and stewardship of our indigeneous wildlife among a greater number of guests, we seek to continually improve the visitors’ experience through modernisation of our services and infrastructure.
