Injured, orphaned or born under human care, the residents of the Ecomuseum Zoo don't have the abilities required to survive in their natural environment. Meet Québec's wildlife such as the Red fox, the American Porcupine, the River Otter, the Gray Wolf, the White tailed deer, the Snowy owl, the Bald Eagle, the Great-horned )wl, the American Kestrel and more!

Discover this lush environment alone or with family and friends while walking on raised boardwalks and learn about the habitat and its denizens thanks to interpretive panels.
