Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo Questions & Answers

I am wondering where you aquire your animals from. Are any of them rescues, and or animals that can not be returned to their natural habitat. We have visited here before and enjoy it very much.

As far as I know, most animals are rescues and even though they have been rehabilitated, cannot be returned to the wild due to their dependence on us for care and feeding. This is the case for the eagles and grizzly bears ( one of which has OCD). Any offspring born at The Forestry Farm Park would have to continue living there since their parents wouldn't know how to care for them in their natural habitat. We do on occasion borrow animals for a term such as the white tigers, kangaroos and red raccoons. Recently, the peacocks have been given to another zoo because of our climate - we would have to build a separate structure for them to properly care for them during the winter (the existing structure is too old). While going through The Park, it's good to read the signs at each animal pen as explanations are usually given about that particular animal.

Some animals are rescue animals. Some are from other zoos. None are retuned

to the wild . Animals that are born in the zoo either stay there or are traded to other zoos

We got this information from the Saskatoon zoo.
