Macaw, Grizzly Bear, Hippopotamus, Siberian Tiger, Oregon Spotted Frog, Muskox


History of The Zoo:

The story of the Greater Vancouver Zoo began in the late 1960's when world traveler and businessman, Pat Hines, purchased 120 acres of land in Aldergrove, British Columbia. It was ideal for the realization of his dream to create a game farm. At first registered as the World Wide Game Farm Ltd.  It became known as the Vancouver Game Farm, which had its official opening on August 20th, 1970.

In 1999 the name of the Greater Vancouver Zoological Centre was changed to the Greater Vancouver Zoo, along with a change of owners and with further improvements for the facility and its inhabitants. In 2012, the Zoo was focused on our successful reaccreditation with CAZA (Canada’s Accredited Zoos and Aquariums), and building our new Animal Care Center for sick and injured animals.
