The Ecomuseum Zoo is pleased to count on financial support from the Fondation Hydro-Québec pour l’environnement to the order of $40,860 for a conservation project aimed at protecting the habitats of the most urban of Québec’s reptiles: the Brown Snake.
Did you know that five out of eight turtle species in Québec have a threatened or vulnerable status? The reasons for this are numerous: predation, pollution, but more importantly, habitat destruction and increased adult mortality due to human activities (road fatalities, collisions with watercraft, etc.). So what does the Ecomuseum Zoo’s research and conservation team do to help this situation?
For over 27 years now, the Ecomuseum Zoo has focused much of its efforts in research and conservation for Québec’s reptiles and amphibians. These lesser-known animals are in great need of help, and our experts are working diligently to protect them through various projects involving different species. During the month of August, discover what they're working on right now and see what you could do to contribute to their efforts.
At the Ecomuseum Zoo we are what we might call "politically neutral", except when talking about our animals; Québec’s wildlife is rich, and it pumps up our Québec pride!
So why would you come visit the zoo on June 24th?
The summer holidays are fast approaching, and we wanted to share with you a few “favorites” if you want to visit animals on the other side of the border.
