Celebrate Mom at the Toronto Zoo

Are you looking for something a little different this year for Mother's Day? How about sharing the day with some special animal moms at the Toronto Zoo?

On Sunday, May 11, from 10am-4pm, the Toronto Zoo is hosting a special activity zone in the Wildlife Marquee, where children 12 and under will be able to create something special just for Mom. Children will have the chance to say "cheese" at the ProShot™ Mother's Day Photo Station*, decorate their own photo frame, create a handmade card for Mom and more! Maybe Dad can bring the kids to the Zoo and give Mom some quiet time alone on her special day.  Or, if the day calls for a family outing, any Moms who visit the Wildlife Marquee on May 11th will be eligible to fill in a ballot to win one $100 gift certificate for Molly Maid, one $50 dinner on us certificate from Pizza Pizza, one $50 gift certificate for Mary Macleod's Shortbread - all-butter and hand-made! 

Of course there are lots of Moms thoughout the Zoo, so don't forget to drop by and visit Lucy the Lemur, Ngozi the Western lowland gorilla, Twiga the Masai giraffe, polar bear Aurora, Shani and Tori, the Grevy's zebras and more! There is also a special display in the Indo-Malaya Pavilion allowing visitors to learn about M.O.M (Missing Orangutan Mothers). Did you know that Orangutan mothers and babies have a very close relationship and that the mother and offspring bond is actually the most important social bond with orangutans? Learn more educational facts including how you can help protect this important and rare species.
