Discover our animals

Have you been introduced to Gandalf, our magnificent Arctic Fox? What about Happy and Iamvic our dynamic River Otters?

We invite you to come meet them and many others totalling more than 115 different species who all live at the Ecomuseum zoo. Along the pathways you will observe animals indigenous to the St-Lawrence Valley of Quebec. You will be charmed by the warmth of our approach and the natural beauty of our site through all the seasons. Our animals look forward to meeting you!

You’ve been to the zoo before and you’d like more information on some of our animals? Choose from among the animals listed below as some links will provide an educational posting providing a brief description of the species. “Situation – Conservation” links are also available for certain species. These latter postings will provide details with respect to the species’ situation in Québec, the threats and challenges it faces as well as conservation efforts in place to assist in it preservation.
