Births at the zoo
Come meet our little ones!
Each birth at the Zoo is a special moment we celebrate in a big way! They offer new hope to many species with declining populations in the wild. Accredited zoological institutions, such as the Zoo de Granby, contribute to maintaining populations threatened with extinction for generations to come! Successful reproduction programs constitute one of the greatest rewards that our animal care professionals can receive, and we're always delighted to share this good news with you.

THE EXCEPTIONAL BIRTH OF A LITTLE ANDEAN CONDOR

The objective was to have the fledgling be raised by a human, without any imprinting on the chick. The small bird, a female, was hatched last June 21.
